Join Our Free Live Webinar on Bone Health!
Osteoporosis affects over 200 million people worldwide, and one in three females and one in eight males will develop osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a disease characterized by low bone density and a deterioration of the bone tissue leading to bone fragility and consequently, increased risk of fracture. It is typically known as a “silent” disease because it is often not diagnosed until after a broken bone has occurred following a minor incident.
Join our speakers, Judith Anne Gould, Onero Certified Physiotherapist from Posture Plus, and Violet Man, Accredited Dietitian from OT&P Healthcare to learn more about the importance of bone health, and how a research-based exercise program and a healthy balanced diet help preserve or even improve your bone density.

About the Speakers
Ms. Judith Anne Gould
BPhty (Hons) (Australia), MPhil (HK)
Registered Physiotherapist (HK & Australia)
Judith has spent the last 25 of her 35 year physiotherapy career focussing on the assessment and treatment of dysfunctional posture and movement patterns through rehabilitation exercise and ergonomic intervention.
Because she observed a high rate of osteoporosis and osteopenia prevalent in her client base, Judith started to explore what current treatment options were available both in Hong Kong and around the world. During that search, she came across LIFTMOR, a study which showed dramatic improvement in the bone density of subjects (with osteopenia and osteoporosis) through a specific targeted exercise programme. It seemed a natural progression of her current practice to open Bone Health Asia, and to become one of the first physiotherapists to complete the Onero Academy Programme outside of Australia.
She passionately believes in the importance of patient education in order to empower her patients to take charge of their own health. With Onero she hopes to show people that they can improve their bone health safely and effectively through exercise based treatment.
