“An ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure.”
Prevention is the best medicine in a world where we live longer but not necessarily healthier. It reduces healthcare costs and ensures a life free from pain and chronic conditions. OsteoStrong significantly contributes to this by maintaining strong bones and muscles, enhancing physical activities, and reducing pain. It not only makes daily life more enjoyable but is also vital in preventing bone-related issues and falls resulting in fractures.
Especially important in today’s sedentary and nutritionally poor lifestyle, OsteoStrong promotes mobility and independence from a young age. It offers a comprehensive approach to musculoskeletal health, addressing stress, inflammation, and metabolic health, supporting a longer and healthier life.

Maintaining Bone and Muscle Strength
In the face of sedentary lifestyles, poor nutrition, longer lifespans, and rising medical costs, prioritizing preventative health, particularly maintaining muscle and bone strength, is essential for physical support and overall well-being.
Healthy and Varied Diet
A balanced diet is crucial for bone and muscle health, especially for individuals with obesity, slim builds, dietary restrictions, or on vegan/vegetarian diets, to ensure they meet their nutritional needs for strong muscles and bones.
Good for the Whole Family
Adopting balanced nutrition and participating in OsteoStrong sessions are key strategies for maintaining long-term bone health and reducing health risks across all ages and genders, including men, teens, young adults, and women.
OsteoStrong Not Just for Women
Men and teenagers, often overlooked in discussions about bone health, can also be significantly affected by low bone density, underscoring the need for awareness and preventive care in these groups as well.
Improves Balance and Strength for Everyday Activities
OsteoStrong enhances strength and balance which can significantly improve daily activities and sports performance, making tasks easier and more enjoyable, while reducing injury risks.

My endocrinologist was delighted, and a little surprised!!
Kathy joined OsteoStrong Hawthorn in Oct 2022 after an osteoporosis diagnosis (-4.1), due to a parathyroid condition. Kathy has been attending weekly osteostrong sessions and is under the care of an endocrinologist. In the last 12 months between DEXA scans she has seen a significant improvement in her bone density.
Spine – 12% improvement
Hip – 11% improvement
Forearm – 36% improvement
Well done Kathy. Fantastic result for all your effort and consistency over the last year!!

No more banging into door frames!
I came in to improve my balance and gained so much more! My bursitis pain in my hip has disappeared, I’m moving better, and with confidence. I’m comfortable to sit on the floor as I know I can get up, and my weak ankle no longer gives our randomly. This has all made me more confident to go walking outside and my spatial awareness has improved!

Stopped bone loss in it’s tracks!
In 2018, Andrea was told she has severe osteoporosis and her bone density would continue to decline rapidly if she didn’t do something. Andrea joined OsteoStrong in December 2019 and her most recent DEXA result from June 2020 shows that her bone density is EXACTLY the same as 2 years ago.

Helping to control diabetes!
Since I joined OsteoStrong South Melbourne, the benefits I have noticed include improvements in my posture and reducing my fasting blood glucose and HbA1c to the level recommended by my doctor. I play golf and I have also noticed I can drive the ball further than before. Generally I also feel fitter with less fatigue physically and mentally and I don’t even have to drop a sweat.
