Tennis & Bone Development
Playing tennis improves and maintains bone health. The action reinforces bones and builds their density. Overtime, consistent playing of tennis decreases the possibility of osteoporosis.
Exercising can help maintain muscle strength, coordination, and balance; this helps to prevent falls and related fractures.
Tennis strengthen wrists and are great for hips and spine with pivots and side moves.
Bone mass is at its highest at around the age of 30 and starts to decline steadily a while later as indicated by the National Institute of Health (NIH). By practicing consistently, one can accomplish this bone mass before the age of 30; continuing to practice after that can assist with lessening the bone loss after 30.
