Welcome to OsteoStrong®, where we’re transforming the way we approach musculoskeletal health, especially when it comes to alleviating joint and back pain. Our sessions are a game-changer, combining muscle strengthening with high compressive loads to provide significant benefits to your tendons, ligaments, joints, facia, and muscles. This method, grounded in the pioneering 1998 UK study by Benjamin and Ralphs, offers a novel way to enhance your musculoskeletal health.
The Science of Relief at OsteoStrong®
What makes OsteoStrong® sessions so effective? Let’s dive into the science:
- Enhancing Blood Flow: Our sessions boost circulation in the joint areas, ensuring a rich supply of nutrients and oxygen while flushing out metabolic waste like lactic acid, which often causes stiffness and pain.
- Improving Joint Lubrication: The compressive forces stimulate synovial fluid production, which incorporates hyaluronic acid (see below), reducing friction and acting as a shock absorber to ease pain and enhance movement.
- Strengthening Supporting Structures: High-load exercises strengthen muscles, tendons, and ligaments, enhancing joint stability and reducing injury and pain risks.
- Breaking Down Scar Tissue: The applied pressure helps break down scar tissue within joints, improving mobility and reducing pain.
- Releasing Fascia: High compression aids in breaking down fascial adhesions, improving blood flow, hydration, and reducing stiffness, leading to better mobility and less pain.
- Reinforcing Spine-Supporting Muscles: Strengthening back muscles reduces pain by supporting and stabilising the spine, improving posture, flexibility, and reducing strain.
- Reduced Pain Perception: With enhanced circulation, lubrication, and improved joint mobility, there’s a notable reduction in pain perception.
What is the Significance of Hyaluronic Acid in joints?
Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in joint health due to its unique properties and functions within joint structures:
- Lubrication: Hyaluronic acid is a key component of synovial fluid, the viscous substance that surrounds and lubricates joints. This lubrication reduces friction between joint surfaces during movement, helping to maintain smooth and pain-free motion.
- Shock Absorption: Due to its gel-like nature, hyaluronic acid acts as a shock absorber within joints, particularly weight-bearing joints like the knees, hips, and spine. This helps protect the joints from the impact and stress associated with daily activities and physical exertion.
- Nutrient Transport: Hyaluronic acid helps in the transport of essential nutrients to the cartilage, which doesn’t have its own blood supply. This is crucial for the maintenance and repair of cartilage tissues.
- Joint Support and Stability: By contributing to the volume and viscosity of synovial fluid, hyaluronic acid supports the structural integrity of the joint, aiding in overall joint stability.
- Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Hyaluronic acid has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce joint inflammation and associated pain, particularly in inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis.
In summary, hyaluronic acid is essential for maintaining joint lubrication, shock absorption, and stability, contributing significantly to overall joint health and function. The high compressive loads experienced in OsteoStrong® sessions is theorised to increase Hyaluronic Acid in joints helping to alleviate to alleviate pain and improve joint mobility.
Comfortable and Effective Sessions
At OsteoStrong®, we ensure that every session is pain-free. You’ll work within your strongest range of biomechanical motion without causing discomfort, suitable even for those with most joint issues or prosthetics. Many of our members report a significant reduction in joint and back pain within just 3 to 5 weeks of starting our program. But it’s more than temporary relief; we’re about building a stronger, pain-free body to reduce stress and inflammation.
