My mother had numerous spinal fractures due to osteoporosis. I've just gone through menopause and tests show I don't have osteoporosis now. I have chosen not to take hormone replacement therapy. Under my doctor's directions, I'm getting adequate calcium and regular exercise. Are there any exercises I can do to reduce my risk of spinal fractures down the line?
