We are recruiting ambulatory individuals with osteoporosis, a history of vertebral fractures, or hyperkyphosis to participate in a Nordic walking intervention.
Intervention includes three Nordic walking sessions per week over three months, which will take place in Market Mall, in collaboration with the Community Health Centre. Measurements include bone densitometry, mobility, and postural measures at the College of Kinesiology labs at the University of Saskatchewan.
If you are interested in participating, please contact study coordinator Dr. Mahdi Rostami at NWS@usask.ca or 306-966-1096.
For additional information, please contact the principal investigator Dr. Saija Kontulainen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 306-966-1077.
