On November 21st, 2022, a dissemination event under the Happy Bones project was held at the "Vasil Levski" National sport academy, which aimed to inform sports specialists, trainers, coaches and sports pedagogues with the specific "Happy Bones" methodology, in which adapted physical activity is applied to people diagnosed with osteoporosis – a progressive metabolic disease of the skeleton. As a result of destruction of the collagen matrix, the bones become thinner and lose their density. The balance between the processes of construction and degradation of bone tissue is disturbed in favor of degradation. Bones become brittle, leading to more frequent fractures – especially in the wrists, spine and hips. With the most dramatic consequences is the fracture in the area of the femoral neck, that is why the creation and validation of such type of protocols is of utmost importance for the correct rehabilitation, recovery and treatment of such type of diseases.
