Let’s Have a Bone Talk

People should take every precaution to prevent osteoporosis, to understand the risk factors, and to recognize the warning signs. Low bone density (osteopenia) affects people of all ages. This is a condition that reduces bone mineral density! With low bone density, holes in the bones widen and the outer walls of the bones thin. As a result, major fractures are more likely to occur. 

Which factors put you at risk for Osteoporosis?

  • Age 
  • Smoking  
  • Drinking a high amount of alcohol 
  • Sedentary lifestyle (inadequate physical activity) 
  • Poor posture and balance 
  • Poor and irregular dietary habits (lack of vitamins and calcium) 
  • Hormonal shifts (menopause)  
  • Other medical conditions include chronic kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and an overactive parathyroid gland, among others. 
  • Genetic 

5 Ways to Identify Osteoporosis

There are a few warning signs that can alert you to get checked, especially if you fall into one of the high-risk categories for low bone density. 

Oral Health Issues

Osteoporosis can affect any bone in your body. Your gums may recede if bone loss occurs in your jaw. 

Weak Grip

Weak grips, which commonly occur in postmenopausal women, are associated with low bone mineral density, according to research.

Britle Fingernails

Your nails tell a lot about your bones. You might want to check if you have osteoporosis if they’re chipping and breaking easily for no obvious reason like your work, hobbies, or sports. 

Slumped Posture and Pain

As you lose bone density, your vertebrae in your spine may become compressed, resulting in a hunched appearance on your upper back, also called a widow’s hump. In addition to back and neck pain, weakened vertebrae are prone to fractures. 

Minor movements can Cause Fractures

When your bone density decreases, your vertebrae in your spine may become compressed, giving your upper back a hunched appearance called a widow’s hump. The vertebrae in your back and neck may also fracture more easily, causing pain. 

What Can You Do to Avoid Osteoporosis?

Work Out

Some exercises can also prevent osteoporosis and build bone mass. High-impact activities such as running, weightlifting, tennis, basketball, and High Advanced Lowe Impact exercises by bioDensity are excellent bone builders. 

Balanced Diet

You’re probably aware that eating a healthy diet is important to bone health. It has been shown that those who consume enough calcium and vitamin D through their diets and exercise regularly may be able to avoid osteoporosis, a loss of bone density that can cause fractures.  Vitamin D is also crucial for your body to absorb calcium. A healthy adult needs about 1,000 mg of calcium per day, and after 65, the amount should increase by 200-500 mg. If you don’t get enough vitamin D, calcium may simply flush through your system.

What Are the Treatments for Osteoporosis?

If your Doctor determines you have osteoporosis, you must make lifestyle changes to prevent it from progressing. Taking calcium and vitamin D-rich foods and abstaining from cigarettes and alcohol are good places to start. As an alternative to pharmaceutical medication with numerous side effects, your doctor may also recommend bioDensity, the only non-pharmaceutical osteoporosis treatment, to help rebuild bone density. 

How Does bioDensity Osteogenic Loading Benefit Musculoskeletal Systems?

You might not realize it, but bioDensity osteogenic loading is crucial to treating bone disorders! The most common bone disorders are stress fractures, arthritis, metabolic bone disease, and osteoporosis, which is one of the most common bone conditions. 

Let’s keep reading… 

How does bioDensity Osteogenic Loading work?

Weight-bearing exercise stimulates the bone-building cells in an individual by exercising with specific weight-bearing activities. The result is an increase in bone density. A less strenuous exercise, such as swimming or walking, can be extremely beneficial to your health. In addition, osteogenic loading increases bone density by compressing the bone matrix. Light exercise cannot stimulate these specific cells in the same way as bone matrix can.  It is important to note that individuals must exceed a certain weight threshold when performing daily activities. By putting some strain on the bones, it will be able to effectively increase bone-building cells and improve bone density. The ideal load should be four times your body weight. When we say four times, we don’t mean you must lift 600 pounds if you weigh 150 pounds.  Bone mineral density should be adequate to handle these medical conditions! But what is the bottom line? 

BioDensity helps you Improve your Bone Density

bioDensity is not a medication, supplement, or medical treatment! bioDensity is a cutting-edge exercise-based device that helps increase bone density. A Non-Pahrmaceutical option to improve bone density, strength, and musculoskeletal system function. Osteogenic loading principles are the key to this therapy’s uniqueness!

In case you suspect you have osteoporosis, don’t wait to get checked. Contact your doctor today or contact us to schedule a bioDensity session and start treatment before osteoporosis worsens!
