Hi Jo and Beverly, Yes, these exercises are designed with the osteoporotic client in mind. Protecting the spine must always be foremost, so avoiding endrange rotation and sidebending is recommended.

Thanks very much for this Sherri. Love your style and approach. As others have commented, very encouraging to the client and systematic in terms of testing control and strength. Lots of food for thought.
