What Is OsteoStrong Elite?

OsteoStrong Elite is Dr. Hamada’s OsteoStrong PLUS Vasper center in Brentwood, Tennessee. It is presently the only center in the country offering OsteoStrong PLUS Vasper.

A 7-minute session once a week is all it takes to achieve unbelievable results.

Backed by science, OsteoStrong is a natural solution that delivers results that are measurable. OsteoStrong promotes healthy joints, strong bones and muscles, better balance and flexibility, and reduces (or eliminates) pain altogether.It’s non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical, and it doesn’t involves heavy exercise. Unlike a gym, the time you spend at an OsteoStrong center doesn’t require hours of weight-bearing exercises.

  • Would you like a stronger body and stronger bones?
  • Would you like to improve your stamina and agility?
  • Would you like to play better golf, tennis, or team sports?
  • If you’re an athlete, would you like to get into shape like the pros, or recover from an injury faster?
  • If you’re a bit older, would you like to enjoy hiking and playing catch or football with your kids and grandkids – with ease?

It’s all possible with OsteoStrong.

During your weekly visit to our OsteoStrong location, you’ll perform four specialized “trigger events” on our patented equipment, monitored by a trained technician to deliver the precise stimulus needed to activate your body’s natural adaptive responses.

In only a few months, it’s also common for OsteoStrong clients to eliminate all of their conditions or symptoms, including: joint and back pain, osteoporosis, loss of flexibility, nerve damage, decreased reaction time, poor posture, and loss of balance and strength.

In fact, noticeable physical improvements and reduced joint or back pain are often reported by most OsteoStrong members after just 2 to 12 sessions.

Achieve Results, Fast, At Any Age

The OsteoStrong system is perfect for almost anyone. Athletes use it to build strength and flexibility. Those with osteoporosis use it to build bone density. Members of all ages use it to rebuild after an accident and to help reduce (or even eliminate) back and joint pain naturally. Seniors and weekend warriors use it to keep their bodies in the best shape possible.

Because OsteoStrong is based on a revolutionary, new approach, many people are surprised when they hear about the results people are having with OsteoStrong, or experience these results for themselves. There seems to be no age boundaries or physical limitations that prevent people from benefiting from the patented system developed and used at OsteoStrong.

OsteoStrong Helps Those with Loss of Balance and Agility

A real concern for many people over 60 is a noticeable loss in balance, a decline in bone mass and muscular strength, and an increase in the number of fall-related injuries. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports that 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will have an injury due to a fall. For anyone, a fall can lead to a serious injury, but even more so for seniors.

Improved balance is one of the first things members notice after just a few sessions at OsteoStrong. OsteoStrong session coaches perform regular balance tests for new members to track their progress.

Learn more about the seriousness of falls from the CDC article.

Relief from Joint and Back Pain

Chronic joint and back pain can be very difficult to endure, leading people to seek extreme solutions to find relief. Many Seniors conclude that drugs and surgery are their only options. Some just figure out a way to live with the pain. OsteoStrong has delivered relief where other options have failed:

  • Chronic knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Neck pain
  • Degenerative disc disease

 

OsteoStrong Helps People with Nerve Damage

The same OsteoStrong sessions that deliver unmatched improvements in bone health and overall strength also play a key role in helping with many forms of nerve pain. In fact, the process is so effective that Dr. Raj Singh, co-author of “OsteoStrong – Osteogenic Loading,” uses osteogenic loading technology in his practice for nerve damage rehabilitation. Many OsteoStrong members with nerve damage caused by stroke have regain feeling and were able to walk without assistance.

Medical Research – Supporting The Results of the OsteoStrong System

The Surgeon General states that increases in bone mineral density to prevent or reverse the effects of osteoporosis are stimulated by maximum loading on the musculoskeletal system. Regular, proper use of the OsteoStrong System enables the user to safely achieve such maximum loading, and therefore helps combat the effects of osteoporosis.

FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH & JOINT HEALTH

Long-term strength training for community-dwelling people over 75: impact on muscle function, functional ability and life style European Journal of Applied Physiology 2007, Jul; p 535-542. This study shows that the amount of habitual physical activity and live-span of both males and females over the age of 75 can be improved by engaging in high- intensity resistance loading of the body.

Biochemical Change in Joint Fluid After Isometric Quadriceps Exercise for Patients with Osteoarthritis of the Knee Osteoarthritis and Cartilage 2003, Apr; p 252-259. This study shows isometric quadriceps exercise resulting in significant changes in joint fluid biochemical parameters, and these changes, at least in part, may explain the positive effect of muscle exercise for osteoarthritis of the knee.

Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 2002, Sep; p 1187-1195. This study shows that dynamic or isometric resistance training improve functional ability and reduce knee joint pain of patients with knee osteoarthritis. This study concludes that maximal loading of the body in exercise leads to significant gains in muscle strength, size, and functional mobility.
