OsteoStrong For Stronger Bones

Our skeleton is essential for our health and longevity, offering structural support, organ protection, and enabling movement, while storing minerals and producing blood cells. Strong bones are crucial to avoid osteoporosis and fractures, thus maintaining independence and enhancing both lifespan and healthspan. 

OsteoStrong®’s osteogenic loading technique, scientifically proven to improve bone density and reduce fracture risks, especially in older individuals with osteopenia and osteoporosis, has shown its effectiveness through over 350,000 sessions in Australia and 10 million globally. These numbers strongly affirm OsteoStrong®’s impact on improving bone and muscle strength and lowering fall and fracture risks.

OsteoStrong For Muscle Strength

Muscle strength is essential for health and longevity, crucial for mobility, injury prevention, joint stability, and reducing strain on bones. It enhances posture, balance, and metabolic health, improving glucose metabolism and aiding in managing diabetes and obesity. 

OsteoStrong® sessions, surpassing traditional workouts, greatly enhance muscle strength through myofibril hypertrophy. The OsteoStrong® Strength Study highlights this, with members showing a remarkable 290% increase in force production over four years, demonstrating the program’s effectiveness in boosting muscle strength.

Osteostrong® For Balance

Good balance is crucial for an active, healthy, and independent lifestyle, especially in older adults, as it helps prevent falls, a significant cause of injuries and fatalities. In Australia, falls result in hospitalisation for 364 people daily, highlighting the need for balance training to protect our aging population. Regular balance and coordination exercises enhance cognitive function and spatial awareness, boosting confidence, well-being, and quality of life. 

OsteoStrong®’s unique approach, integrating the central nervous system and musculoskeletal system with vibration plate technology, quickly improves balance and agility. Our 2017 Balance Study showed that members improved their balance by 77% in just 5 weeks, demonstrating the effectiveness of this method.

Osteostrong® For Blood Glucose Regulation And Insulin Resistance

Managing blood glucose control and insulin resistance is essential for healthy aging, preventing type 2 diabetes and its complications like heart and kidney diseases, while maintaining energy, cognitive function, and metabolic health. Proper management of type 2 diabetes is critical due to its link to cardiovascular, neurological, and cancerous conditions.

OsteoStrong® sessions provide a unique muscle strengthening approach, emphasising myofibril hypertrophy for increased muscle fiber density and strength, unlike traditional weightlifting. This technique is shown to be highly effective in managing blood glucose levels, potentially twice as effective as regular weightlifting, and Metformin, as per a 2015 UK study.

Osteostrong® For Joint & Back Pain

OsteoStrong® sessions are transforming musculoskeletal health by significantly alleviating joint and back pain. This is achieved through muscle strengthening and applying high compressive loads, benefiting tendons, ligaments, and joints, validated by a 1998 UK study by Benjamin and Ralphs. 

Many members report a noticeable reduction in joint and back pain within 3 to 5 weeks of starting the program, leading to not just temporary relief but a stronger, pain-free body, which helps reduce stress and inflammation, enhancing health, vitality, and longevity. This enables a more active lifestyle, which in turn brings additional metabolic health benefits.

Osteostrong® For Muscle Pain

Reducing pain from muscles and fibromyalgia brings significant benefits, enhancing quality of life by improving mobility, reducing chronic discomfort, and alleviating the associated psychological stress and fatigue.

Members of OsteoStrong® have experienced relief from pain symptoms associated with conditions like fibromyalgia. The brief, once-a-week sessions, involving just one exertion per machine, do not lead to the kind of fatigue often seen with conventional exercise programs. Beyond pain reduction, these sessions also greatly enhance bone and muscle strength, as well as balance, all of which are key to the overall health and well-being of these members.

Osteostrong® For Improved Posture, Walking Gait & Height Gains

Improved posture and walking gait are crucial for health and lifespan, as they enhance mobility, reduce the risk of falls and injuries, and contribute to overall physical and psychological well-being, directly impacting long-term vitality.

OsteoStrong® sessions, through high compressive loads and targeted muscle development, significantly improve posture realignment and can effectively manage and improve spinal curvature conditions like mild Scoliosis, Lordosis, and Kyphosis. These sessions lead to rapid posture improvements at all ages and support a proper heel-to-toe gait essential for fall prevention, enhancing obstacle visibility, stable walking, and regained height.

Common Bone Health Risk Factors

According to Healthy Bones Australia (formerly Osteoporosis Australia), the International Osteoporosis Foundation, and scientific studies, some of the risk factors associated with poor bone health are:

Poor bone health, leading to conditions like osteoporosis and increased fracture risk, can be attributed to a variety of factors. Age is a major contributor, as bones lose density and strength naturally over time. Hormonal changes, especially in women during and after menopause due to a decrease in estrogen, significantly affect bone density. 

Nutritional deficiencies are also key, particularly insufficient intake of vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy fats for bone and muscle formation and maintenance. Lifestyle choices such as a lack of physical activity, excessive alcohol use, and smoking can exacerbate bone weakening. Many medical condition and medications, like long-term corticosteroids, thyroid disorders, and celiac disease, can negatively impact bone health. Genetic predisposition also plays a role, with a family history of osteoporosis indicating higher risk. 

Therefore, a combination of genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors contributes to poor bone health, and addressing these can help in its prevention and management.


Essential Bone Health Nutrition & Supplement Information

Adequate intake of essential nutrients is essential for bone and muscle health, playing a key role in their development and function, and is also crucial in managing conditions like osteoporosis, osteopenia, sarcopenia, dynapenia, and various metabolic disorders. 

OsteoStrong®’s osteogenic loading approach, incorporating weight-bearing and impact exercises, is fundamental in enhancing bone density and strength, forming a critical part of an integrated health strategy that includes nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle choices for optimal musculoskeletal health and longevity.

Steps For Optimal Bone And Muscle Health

Optimal bone and muscle health, crucial at all ages, depends not only on factors like age, genetics, and gender but also on exercise, lifestyle, nutrition, and environmental influences, with epigenetics playing a key role in health outcomes. 

Current research indicates that 80-90% of your health is determined by epigenetics, reducing the emphasis on genetics. Epigenetics are environmental and behavioral aspects that we can modify for better health outcomes.  

An integrated approach, combining lifestyle, nutrition and environmental modifications and specialised exercises like dose-dependent osteogenic loading found in the OsteoStrong® program, is essential for preventing and managing bone health issues.
