Did you know that 1 in 2 women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis? Did you know a man over 50 is more likely to break a bone due to osteoporosis than to get prostate cancer? But there is help that can reduce your chances of such unfortunate events from occurring - OsteoStrong! “The Ultimate Biohack!”
OsteoStrong is a membership-based Integrated Health and Wellness Center with a Focus on Musculoskeletal Strengthening. A Robotic Musculoskeletal Development System consisting of 4 devices is used to allow members to briefly load many multiples of their body weight onto their musculoskeletal system.
The four-device circuit takes about 10 minutes once per week to complete. Under the direction of a certified session coach, users engage in a safe, controlled movement on each device that results in a stimulus to the central nervous system triggering osteogenesis, or new bone growth. Sessions are pain-free and sweat-free.
Each device provides instant biofeedback with a member’s impact emulation force exertion measured in pounds and multiples of body weight. Data is recorded and a report is sent to the member detailing their progress at the end of each session.
Clients report up to 14% increases in Bone Mineral Density over 12 months, between bone density scans. They also report increased agility, decreased joint pain, significant improvements in strength, balance, and better posture.
Who can benefit?
· Anyone with osteopenia or osteoporosis
· Pre and Post-Menopausal women
· Anyone wanting to complement pharmaceuticals or explore an alternative to them
· Deconditioned patients needing strength and balance training
· Anyone at risk for falls or poor balance
· Individuals experiencing chronic pain or poor posture
· Anyone in need of post-physical therapy strengthening
OsteoStrong works because it allows users to apply enough force to their skeletal structure to cause the bone to adapt and grow. For instance, scientific studies have shown the hip joint requires a minimum of about 4x bodyweight to trigger growth. As adults, impact becomes associated with injury. OsteoStrong allows people to get the benefit of impact without the associated risks, providing a physical medicine option that has no side effects.
