Can you reverse osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people worldwide, causing bones to become weak, an increase in bone fractures, and loss of bone mass. This can lead to frequent fractures and a decline in overall quality of life. Over 2.3 million Canadians are living with osteoporosis and over 80% of all fractures in people 50+ are caused by osteoporosis. Did you know osteoporosis can be reversed? BioStrong is here to help build stronger bones. Osteogenic loading is a type of exercise that involves placing mechanical stress on bones to stimulate bone growth and remodeling. Research has shown that osteogenic loading can be an effective way to reverse the effects of osteoporosis and improve bone health. 

What is Osteoporosis? 

Osteoporosis is a result of a number of factors, including age, hormonal changes, and lifestyle factors such as diet and physical activity. As we age, the rate of bone formation decreases, while the rate of bone resorption increases. This leads to loss of bone mass, which can cause bones to become fragile and prone to bone fractures. Hormonal changes, such as those experienced during menopause, can also affect bone health.

The standard treatment for osteoporosis typically involves medications, such as bisphosphonates, that slow down the rate of bone resorption. While these medications can be effective, they are not a cure for osteoporosis and may have side effects. In addition, some studies have suggested that long-term use of these medications may actually be harmful to bone health.

How Can I Reverse Osteoporosis?

Osteogenic loading, on the other hand, has been shown to be a safe and effective way to reverse the effects of osteoporosis and improve bone health. Osteogenic loading is a type of exercise that involves applying mechanical stress to bones in order to stimulate bone growth and remodeling. This can be achieved through weekly sessions here at BioStrong.

The principle behind osteogenic loading is based on the concept of Wolff's law, which states that bones will adapt to the mechanical stresses placed on them. When bones are subjected to mechanical stress, such as that created by our bioDensity™ machine, bone cells called osteoblasts are stimulated to produce new bone tissue. This then leads to an increase in bone density and strength.

Stronger Bones with BioStrong

In addition to increasing bone density, osteogenic loading at BioStrong can also improve other aspects of bone health such as bone mass. These improvements in bone quality by increasing bone mass can further reduce the risk of fractures and improve your overall quality of life. Osteogenic loading can also have other health benefits, such as reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, improving balance and coordination, and increasing muscle strength. This can be especially important for older adults, who may be at increased risk of falls and fractures.

In conclusion, reversing osteoporosis with osteogenic loading is a safe and effective way to improve bone health, bone mass and reduce the risk of fractures. By placing mechanical stress on bones, osteogenic loading can stimulate bone growth and remodeling, leading to an increase in bone density and strength. By incorporating weekly sessions with BioStrong into one's daily routine, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle habits, individuals can take control of their bone health and maintain a high quality of life as they age.
