Clinical Osteofit Classes in Victoria

What is Osteofit?

Osteofit is a medically endorsed program created by the BC Women’s Hospital focusing on exercise, education, and falls prevention for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia, low bone density, or at increased risk for fractures and falls.

 

 


What makes Clinical Osteofit Classes different?

Clinical Osteofit is a safe and gentle strength, balance, and coordination program that is run by an Osteofit certified Kinesiologist. Our Kinesiologists will incorporate their knowledge of exercise prescription, and the recommendations of our Physiotherapists, to create a safe environment for all participants.  Class sizes will be kept small to ensure that the Kinesiologist can closely supervise and monitor clients’ safety.

If you have co-existing injuries or pain, this exercise pathway would begin with Physiotherapy assessment and treatment by one of our highly qualified Physiotherapists. With referral, clients will then progress to our Clinical Osteofit Program held at the Gordon Head Recreation Center.

 

*A minimum of 1 one hour private appointment with a Kinesiologist will be required before starting the program.*

  1. Reduce risk of falls and fractures
  2. Improve balance, strength, and health knowledge
  3. Improve functional ability to do day-to-day activities
  4. Promote joy of activity and independence
