how it works
OsteoStrong is a new, completely natural way for us to build Stronger Bones, Better Balance, Stronger Muscles and Pain-Free Joints in our bodies. It works to promote skeletal strength which impacts the entire body in many ways using a process known as Osteogenic Loading.
Bone is living tissue that is constantly remodeling itself. It is a widely known fact that we steadily lose bone density after about the age of 30 years. Although there may be a number of contributing factors such as diet, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, medical conditions, certain medications, and genetics, the bottom line is that bone loss occurs when the normal breakdown/resorption of bone tissue outpaces the building process. This is when osteopenia or osteoporosis (literally “porous bone”) can set in, ultimately increasing the risk of fractures. Sadly, many people don’t know that they have a weak skeletal frame until it is too late and they’ve experienced a fracture.
At OsteoStrong, we help you build new, healthy bone tissue through a simple, safe, and controlled process of impact emulation called osteogenic loading. This impact emulation is important because research has shown that high levels of pressure are required to naturally stimulate new growth of bone tissue. The stimulus is introduced to trigger your body’s natural adaptive responses at a cellular level to tip the scales of bone formation and bone resorption back in your favor, reversing bone loss!
Muscle loss, or sarcopenia, also occurs after about the age of 30. Each decade we lose as much as 3% to 5%, which translates to loss of strength and decreased mobility and balance. This loss of strength may contribute to an increased possibility of falling and associated fracture.
An additional benefit of the osteogenic loading process is the creation of more dense muscle cells by way of brief hypertrophy events. The increased density of these cells results in impressive strength gains which is essential for movement, balance, and stability, giving you the freedom to do the physical activities you enjoy more effectively and with less pain.
At every level we are seeing the benefits of OsteoStrong in Athletes. From high school to the professional / Olympic levels, they experience new found strength, agility, and overall performance to rise above both peers and competition.
One reason our system at OsteoStrong is so effective in building strength is due to a phenomenon called “neural inhibition”. This is the term that describes how our Central Nervous System (CNS) will not allow us to physically progress further than the weakest component in our musculoskeletal chain. It is a naturally occurring protective mechanism in our bodies. Often we find that the our bones are the weak link in that chain.
Through our unique system of osteogenic loading, you build stronger, more healthy bone tissue, along with more dense muscle tissue, tendons, and ligaments. The resulting strength of all of these components translates to enhanced physical performance, balance, and even injury prevention.
In recent years, our society has increased in the amount of knowledge workers found in the workforce. Many of us sit at a desk, slouched over a computer for the majority of the work day. Then afterwards, both children and adults often lounge in front of televisions or gaming systems and have established routines that neglect the physical stimuli needed to maintain a strong and healthy musculoskeletal system. As we age, it’s not uncommon to forego high impact activities. We tend to “take it easy” to avoid overdoing it and risking injury. While there is some wisdom to this, we also miss out on the benefits that high impact activities have on us.
Wolff’s Law, developed by anatomist and surgeon Julius Wolff in the 19th century, states that the bone tissue of a healthy person will adapt to the loads (i.e. pressures or forces) under which they’re exposed. In simple terms, this means that bones that have little or no pressures applied to them become weaker over time. We now know, based on research, that specific load levels are needed to trigger bone growth or “osteogenesis”.
While the technologies and conveniences of modern day society may contribute to weaker musculoskeletal health, the Spectrum system at OsteoStrong can prevent and/or reverse low bone density and decreased strength also using science and technology. This intelligent approach has been coined a “biohack” and is beneficial for your whole family. From age 9 to 90 and in only 10 minutes a week, you can help to ensure your bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are strong and healthy, ensuring a longer and more vibrant life.
