    Most definitely! Certain types of exercise have a response on the bone to help maintain bone density. The best types of exercises for healthy bones include weight bearing activities, strength training and high impact exercises (eg: jumping or running). Inactive lifestyles and diets low in calcium can attribute to low bone density and an increased risk of fractures at any age.
