As soon as the early signs of spring appear, golfers start counting down the days until their first tee-off of the season! Golfing is a great outdoor sport, a good form of exercise, can be done on your own or with a group and it’s fun! But for those who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis – you may need to make modifications or choose a different way to play the sport depending on your condition.

Our keynote speakers review exercise and physical activity recommendations, discuss golf movements to modify to prevent fractures and will demonstrate and discuss strategies to modify your golf game and more.
