Back pain is one of the most common reasons that Canadians visit their doctors. Four out of five Canadians experience back pain at some point in their lives.
When they do so, it’s likely that they’ll be recommended rest and/or pain medication. Few seem to be recommended exercise. It’s important to seek medical advice about your condition (as back pain can be related to other conditions) but there is good evidence to suggest that osteogenic loading exercises can progressively improve some instances of back and joint pain.
Back and joint pain can have many causes and it is important to seek a proper diagnosis before engaging in any treatment. However, even with a doctor’s intervention, the underlying cause may go undiagnosed. Back or joint pain may be due to:
It’s important for people with back or joint pain to note that when it results from weakened bones, muscles, or osteoporosis (caused by low bone mineral density) the condition can be reversed by focusing on strengthening the musculoskeletal system.
Osteogenic loading strengthens the musculoskeletal system, which can reduce joint and back pain in the short and longer term. The BioStrong system incorporates a system of bone-loading exercises that stimulate the body’s natural ability to rebuild bones by increasing density.
They also aid the strengthening of muscle, so the entire musculoskeletal system sees the benefits. It effectively remodels itself, reclaims lost bone density and strength, and creates a stronger frame for support. That can lead to less joint and back pain.
Many people who suffer from back or joint pain wonder if they can safely perform the exercises in the BioStrong program without causing more pain or injury. With very few exceptions, they can. This is because the pressure on joints is controlled and there is very little movement required.
In advance of any program, you should be thoroughly checked by a health professional.
