How does OsteoStrong® work?
OsteoStrong Australia is leading a revolution in natural bone health, through the application of advanced research and technologies.
Spectrum® is a patented system of osteogenic loading exercise apparatus at the heart of the OsteoStrong® program. Through regular use, Spectrum® enables participants of almost any age or condition to build bone density safely.
During supervised sessions, participants apply an appropriate dosage of force to the skeletal system, in a precise, safe and measurable manner to trigger osteogenesis.

Who conducts my OsteoStrong sessions?
The OsteoStrong® program is delivered within our centres by an experienced team of specialized coaches from a range of fields, including – health and fitness, exercise science, allied health, wellness, strength and conditioning, and medical.
All OsteoStrong® session coaches are specifically trained and certified to operate Spectrum® osteogenic loading equipment and to support members with their personalized bones, balance and strength program.
Within what time frame can I expect to see results?
OsteoStrong® is an efficacy based program and as such we conduct initial and ongoing baseline testing to evaluate your progress and personalize your program.
In as little as 5 weeks our members typically see improvements in balance, mobility and energy. Within 3-6 months we see measurable improvements in functional strength and stability.
Bone density changes are usually measured by a DXA scan every 1-2 years. However, the biological process of bone remodeling (osteogenesis) can be verified using blood marker testing, once the required triggers* are consistently achieved.
Humans remodel a new skeleton roughly every 10 years. Therefore, the benefits of any positive interventions you put in place will accumulate over that 10 year period.
Is a GP referral required for OsteoStrong®?
The OsteoStrong program meets and exceeds the RACGP guidelines for osteoporosis prevention, diagnosis and management. It is scientifically proven to be a safe and effective way to build bone density, increase musculoskeletal strength, and improve balance and posture for people of all ages and all levels of fitness.
You do not require a medical referral to participate, however we may require those with certain pre-existing conditions or recent fractures to obtain appropriate clearance from their primary healthcare provider upon request.
We also welcome enquiries, referrals and share care arrangements from medical and allied health professionals seeking to support their patients.
