Exercise and Osteoporosis Group

Category: Local Groups

Osteoporosis 2000 a registered charity based at Hillsborough. We operate a drop in Centre where people can visit or call to get advice and information about osteoporosis. In addition we also provide exercise classes in the community. We currently hold a general exercise class aimed at prevention at Chapletown Methodist Church on Mondays 10.00 – 11.00. Our other classes are Falls Prevention classes which are held on Fridays 10.30 -11.30 & 11.45 -12.45 at the Scout Hut on Burncross Road. The falls prevention classes are based on the OTAGO programme which is an evidence based routine of exercise designed to prevent falls. We are working with the NHS falls team to encourage people who may be at risk of falling to access these classes. Anyone can attend any of these classes they just need to wear suitable clothing and comfortable footwear. The classes operate on a pay as you go system so no upfront fees.
