A healthy skeletal system consists of strong bones and stable, yet supple, joints. Osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are among the most common ailments of the skeletal system. Good nutrition and doing weight-bearing activities, such as walking, help to increase bone densities. Intense training may cause damage such as stress fractures. Doing exercises safely to avoid injuries is key to skeletal health and to avoid joint pains.

The New Year brings a new series on Skeletal Health to you. Bones and ligaments together form the body's skeletal system, and how strong bones are depends largely on the density of the bone mass, which can grow up to 30 years old to attain the "peak bone mass". The peak bone mass tend to be higher in men than women.

For most women, there is little change in this peak bone mass until menopause. There is rapid bone loss in the first few years of menopause, which then slows but continues throughout menopause. This bone loss may lead to osteoporosis, and Asian women are especially vulnerable. To learn more about osteoporosis, and how to minimize bone loss as age advances, please join us in the upcoming class on Osteoporosis. It is the first class in our Skeletal Health Series which is given by faculty from our renowned UCSF Orthopedic Institute at Mission Bay, which hosts a multitude of innovative programs and services - all related to bones and human performance in sports.

Join us in these lectures to find out how to keep your bones healthy.

新的一年帶來了新的骨骼健康講座系列。人的骨骼系統是由骨骼和韌帶構成,骨骼的健康依賴於骨質的密度,密度可以一直增加到30歲以達到“峰值骨量”。男性的峰值骨量往往比女性高。

對於大多數女性,此峰值骨量一直到絕經年齡的變化不大。然而,在絕經期的最初幾年骨質便開始快速流失,然後在整個更年期間,骨質也會持續但緩慢地流失。這可能導致骨骼系統最常見的疾病之一的骨質疏鬆症,亞裔女性特別容易受到傷害。

良好的營養和做負重活動,如散步,有助於增加骨密度。但是,過量的訓練卻可以造成損傷,如骨折。要保持骨骼健康,最重要是做運動時要小心和注意安全,以免令關節受傷和疼痛。

這是我們骨骼健康講座系列的第一個講座。這些講座是由位於米慎灣著名的加州大學舊金山分校骨科研究所的教授担任做講者。這骨科研究所有多種創新涉及到骨骼健康和運動體能表現的方案和服務。

要了解更多關於骨質疏鬆症,以及如何大限度地減少因為年齡而丟失骨量的進度,請參加即來的骨質疏鬆症講座。
