Natural Solution for Osteoporosis
Have you been diagnosed with Osteopenia or Osteoporosis, or concerned with bone loss, strength and balance? Do you do everything you can to “not” take pharmaceuticals? If you have been affected by lower bone density and are searching for a non-pharmaceutical option, Osteostrong could be your answer.
OsteoStrong St. Louis, the new wellness center in Creve Coeur, offers a drug-free option for those with bone loss. Their patented system of equipment simulates high impact activity, without the risk of injury. It’s safe for all ages and conditioning levels and only requires one short session once a week. Research shows exercise does not build bone as much as once thought. Walking, running, and strength training are good for your overall health, but does very little to slow the effects of osteoporosis.
According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis is estimated to affect 200 million women worldwide and causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually. (That’s an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds!) Most have heard that the best thing to do for bone strength is weight bearing exercise, but research suggests that multiples of your body weight of force is required to trigger osteogenesis (formation of bone), which is impossible to do with conventional weight training for most people.
The system at OsteoStrong was developed by Dr. John Jaquish, PhD. Dr. Jaquish’s initial intent was to reverse his own mother’s osteoporosis. In his research he found that gymnasts frequently had high BMD (Bone Mass Density), along with “any athlete that absorbed very high impact force”. That high level of force that a gymnast’s body absorbs is able to be accomplished safely through the osteogenic loading equipment at OsteoStrong, in just one short session a week.
OsteoStrong is not just for increasing bone density, the treatment also helps increase strength and balance, and is helping reduce joint pain as well. Improving strength and balance for someone with low BMD is extremely important in achieving the goal of preventing falls and ultimately preventing fractures.
