Many people experience bone density loss from the effects of aging, injury or degenerative wear and tear, but for those that have undergone breast cancer treatment, bone loss is a common issue. This is also true for many other types of cancer.
Chemotherapy drugs are known to reduce bone density, and with breast cancer, in particular, many of the medications can push a woman’s body into early menopause, which exacerbates the depletion of minerals in the bones.
Going through breast cancer is extremely challenging on physical, emotional, and medical levels. A healthy diet and exercise are critical to help patients feel better and recover faster, but there is also an innovative way to increase bone density rapidly.
OsteoStrong Increases Bone Density
The greatest effect on bone strength and health is the result of high-impact activity, and hundreds of studies have confirmed this, even identifying the minimum dose of force required through bone as being over 4 times bodyweight in the hip joint.
As adults, impact becomes associated with injury therefore adults intentionally avoid impact and thus even those who engage in exercise often fail to maintain bone health. OsteoStrong utilizes a series of robotic musculoskeletal treatment devices utilizing high impact emulation, so that people can get the benefit of impact without the associated risks, providing a physical medicine option that has no side effects.
Bisphosphonates are generally the first line of defense for patients diagnosed with osteoporosis. Unfortunately, the risk of side effects can make this a complicated decision. Until now there were few exercise-based non-pharmaceutical options that offered significant increases in bone density in a safe manner for even the most high-risk patients.
Why only 7 Minutes per week? Can’t I do weight training and get the same effect?
The published research on this topic does not indicate that strengthen your bones through convention exercises or weight training is likely. A study published in 2012 identified that the minimum force required to trigger bone growth is 4.2 multiples of body weight (4.2 MOB). Engaging in that amount of force safely, outside of an OsteoStrong® center is not recommended for most people. The good news is that our proprietary Spectrum System safely allows clients to experience much more than the 4.2 MOB minimum to trigger the skeletal building response people are looking for.
OsteoStrong offers a highly effective, evidence-based musculoskeletal strengthening program that can be used to compliment and or replace pharmaceutical treatment and as a preventative protocol.
OsteoStrong is a membership-based Integrative Health and Wellness Center with a focus on Musculoskeletal Strengthening. The four device circuit takes only minutes once per week to complete. Under the direction of a skilled technician, 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.
Each device provides instant biofeedback with a member’s impact emulation force exertion measured in pounds and multiples of body weight.
