A Better Tomorrow Starts With Healthy Bones
Let Us Help You Get There.
Osteoporosis actually means “porous bone.” About 54 million Americans have low bone mass, which means they are at increased risk for Osteoporosis. If you look at a healthy bone under a microscope, you’ll see that parts of it look like a honeycomb.
Osteoporosis is a common condition, and it affects many individuals as they grow older. This kind of condition causes the bones in your body to become weak and brittle, increasing the risk of bone fractures and other similar complications. Fortunately, there are steps for a person to take that can improve the overall health of their bones, all while reducing the risk of developing osteoporosis.
We have the facility and technology needed to strengthen the bones in your body and improve your health and overall well-being. OsteoStrong’s health and wellness center at Lake Forest uses a specialized system called the Spectrum System, which involves a series of exercises that are designed to trigger bone growth and development.
Comparison For Bone Density Improvement
In 2012, a study was published that showed that, with bone density testing, subjects had to experience at least 4.2 times their body weight in order to trigger the growth of healthy new bone tissue. At the OsteoStrong wellness center, members easily experience 4 to 10 times their own body weight without injury or pain, triggering the development of healthy new bone tissue according to a 2012 study.
How OsteoStrong Helps Improve The Health of Your Bones?
Tailor-Made To Your Needs
One of the key benefits of OsteoStrong is that the exercises can be customized to fit each individual's unique needs and abilities. Whether you're recovering from an injury or have a pre-existing medical condition, the exercises can be adapted to help you build bone strength and improve overall health. Additionally, the low-impact nature of the exercises makes them accessible to individuals of all ages and abilities.
- Non-Invasive and Safe
OsteoStrong is a safe and non-invasive way to improve bone health. Unlike other osteoporosis exercises or treatments, such as medications or surgeries, the exercises used at OsteoStrong do not carry the same risks or side effects. Additionally, the low-impact nature of the exercises makes them safe for individuals of all ages and abilities.
- Helping Trigger the Growth Of Your Bones
The Spectrum System used at OsteoStrong is designed to trigger bone growth and development. The exercises involve the use of special machines that provide resistance to the body, stimulating bone growth and increasing bone density. Over time, regular use of the Spectrum System can lead to stronger, denser bones that are less susceptible to fractures and other complications.
- Improving Your Health and Well-Being
In addition to improving bone health, OsteoStrong can also help promote overall health and well-being. The exercises used at OsteoStrong can help improve balance, flexibility, and posture, reducing the risk of falls and other injuries. Additionally, regular exercise has been shown to have a variety of health benefits, including improved cardiovascular health and a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.
Can Compliment Other Treatments for Osteoporosis
While OsteoStrong can be an effective standalone treatment for improving bone health, it can also complement other treatments for osteoporosis. For example, individuals who are taking medications to treat osteoporosis can use OsteoStrong to help improve the effectiveness of their treatment. Additionally, individuals who have undergone surgery for osteoporosis can use OsteoStrong to help aid in their recovery and prevent future complications.

OSTEOSTRONG HELPS WITH OSTEOPOROSIS
Osteoporosis is a condition of the bones specific to their density. It occurs when you lose too much bone and/or make too little bone. As a result, your bones become weak and may break from a fall. About 54 million Americans have low bone mass, which means they are at increased risk for Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis actually means “porous bone.” If you look at healthy bone under a microscope, you’ll see that parts of it look like a honeycomb. If you have osteoporosis, the holes and spaces in the honeycomb are bigger than they are in healthy bone. Many people age 50 or older make a decision to have a bone density test.
In 2012, a study was published that showed that subjects had to experience at least 4.2 times their body weight in order to trigger the growth of healthy new bone tissue. At OsteoStrong, members easily experience 4 to 10 times their own bodyweight without injury or pain, triggering the development of healthy new bone tissue according to the 2012 study.
NON ACTIVE LIFESTYLE, NO SUPPLEMENTS
In 2003, the New England Journal of Medicine published an article which established that after the onset of menopause, females may lose 1.9% of their bone mass density per year.
WALKING + CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D
A compiled analysis of 8 studies found brisk walking type exercise showed no bone density gain between the hip and spine over the course of a year.
WHOLE BODY VIBRATION
A compiled analysis of 18 studies found whole body vibration (WBV) showed no bone density gain between the hip and spine over the course of a year, but positive implications were seen with activation of muscle, and help with balance and proper movement.
WEIGHT BEARING EXERCISE
A compiled analysis of 62 studies found weight bearing exercise showed an average of 1% bone density gain between the hip and spine over the course of a year.
BISPHOSPHONATE DRUGS + CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D
Bisphosphonate drugs like Boniva, Actonel, and Fosamax which are the standard of care can show an average of 1.6% bone density gain between the hip and spine. Side effects include increased cancer risk for those who have risk factors. Side effects include risks of abnormal bone fractures and dissolving of the human jaw. Learn more by discussing these drugs with your physician.
BONE ANABOLIC DRUGS + CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D
Forteo is a bone anabolic, which has shown an average of 6.15% bone density gain between the hip and spine. Side effects can potentially include increased cancer risk for those who have risk factors. As this drug is newer, much is still to be learned. This drug is only prescribed for patients at high risk of fracture, and patients have to be monitored closely for adverse effects. Learn more by discussing these drugs with your physician.
MUSCULOSKELETAL STRENGTH CONDITIONING
The use of osteogenic devices has shown promising results. Though there are only 4 studies on the specific application of osteogenic loading devices, the underlying principal is one of the most fundamental of human physiology (mechanotransduction as discussed earlier) and as loads seen with osteogenic use are far beyond the minimum established trigger for building bone, the results seen are beyond that of other treatments. Bone density has been shown to improve 7.34% between the spine and hip results over one year of treatment. Further, Hunte and researchers found bone density gains of over 14% after 6 months of treatment. Further research shows statistical congruency with a larger sample (n=2300) for functional bone performance gains and BMD.
