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.
