Winter Activities & You

During the snowy months there are many ways to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. If you have osteoporosis – you may need to make modifications to some winter activities or choose a different way to stay active entirely depending on your condition. Our keynote speakers address outdoor activities like skiing, skating, walking and even shovelling snow for people with osteoporosis.

Before undertaking any physical activity, you should consult with your healthcare provider.

All, Exercise, Living Well


As we continue to practice physical distancing and self-isolate, it’s important to stay active to help manage your bone health and osteoporosis and to reduce your risk of breaking a bone during COVID-19.

Join Dr. Lora Giangregorio to learn about the types of exercise that are effective for fall and fracture prevention, and how to develop an exercise program at home. Dr. Giangregorio will lead a discussion where you can ask general questions about exercise.

Dr. Lora Giangregorio is a Professor and Schlegel Research Chair in Mobility and Aging in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo, and an affiliated scientist with the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging, the University Health Network, and the Geriatric Education and Research in Aging Sciences Centre.
