Osteo-Circuit™ is a Physiotherapy Exercise and Education Program for people with osteoporosis or low bone density. One in two women and one in five men over the age of 50 will suffer an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetime. Physiotherapists can play a key role in decreasing risk of fracture as well as promoting health and independence.
Unique features of the Osteo-Circuit™ Method include the application of extensive theory, and the understanding of current medical management, as it relates to the Physiotherapy management of the osteoporosis patient. The detailed assessment of each patient, whether fit or frail, with or without vertebral fractures, male or female, of any age, leads to the prescription of an individualized and progressive exercise and education program.
A recent Program Evaluation with the University of Toronto demonstrated there was a statistically significant decrease in fall and fracture risk in post-menopausal women who adhered to the program. The Program Evaluation recommended Osteo-Circuit™ be expanded to other clinics and community settings. There are presently clinics in Canada, the United States and Israel providing the Osteo-Circuit™ program.
