Pain Management and Osteoporosis

Pain Management and Osteoporosis

What we are learning from the links between pain management and osteoporosis. Osteoporosis manifests itself for one or both of the following reasons: an individual is not putting enough load on the body, or, the individual is not absorbing enough nutrients and minerals into the body for use in building bone. Neither of the two reasons are necessarily affiliated with … [Read more...]

Superman and Bone Density

Bone Density Science & Superman

The science behind Superman and bone density contains more truth than one might expect. That truth can now be applied through a new, breakthrough technology, explained by inventor and guest author, Dr. John Jaquish. When I speak to medical practitioners about treating osteoporosis with heavy, multiples of bodyweight loading, I am often asked about research to support … [Read more...]

Static Contraction Training

Tony Robbins has a new, safer way to perform Static Contraction Training, which can provide incredible health benefits, including increasing bone density.   Last year the osteoporosis institute produced an info-graphic listing all options for bone health. Pharmaceutical, dietary, exercise, and exercise like interventions were all listed and described in … [Read more...]

Bone Density and Whole Body Vibration – PART 1

Bone density and whole body vibration therapy, does it work? Bone density and whole body vibration. Fitness facilities have been promoting this vibration technology as a solution to osteoporosis. Users of whole body vibration platforms stand on a platform/surface that shakes/vibrates. Some platforms move in as up/down motion, and others vibrate in a side-to-side motion, … [Read more...]

Obesity and Osteoporosis

Dispelling the myth that overweight and obese people have a bone mass density advantage It is becoming less frequent that one can see articles about how osteopenia and osteoporosis are diseases that are more likely in individuals who are slight in frame. Well-established research for over 100 years has shown that additional axial mechanical loading on the musculoskeletal … [Read more...]

Preventing a Fall Can Prevent a Fracture

Bone fracture rates are on the rise in the United Kingdom, and care is unable to keep up with the trend The Department of Health in the United Kingdom is calling for action to be taken to decrease falls that result in fracture to prevent huge increases in cost to National Health Services. a report from Age UK and the National Osteoporosis Society states that health … [Read more...]

Bone Density and Space Travel

Gravity it keeps you on the ground, and keeps your bones healthy   In 1892, Dr. Julius Wolff reported the changes that are made in bone based on loading that is placed on the body. Most specifically, by placing the highest tolerable loads on the skeletal structure in an axial format. This means load placed on the long bones of the body, from one end to the other, … [Read more...]

Women and Exercise for Bone Density Generation

Exercise can often be the best way to treat many adverse physical conditions, however for bone health, finding the right exercise may be difficult   Often, women engage in resistance training to improve their health, but almost as often are limited by the safety and non-practicality of conventional resistance training. Conventional resistance training is effective … [Read more...]

Mechanical Force, Childhood, and Osteoporosis

To put osteoporosis into perspective, the process that creates bone mass density must be understood When mechanical force is applied to bone mass, in a way where, bending, torsion or stretching occurs, a cellular response can take place to cause an adaptation in the density of bone mass. These loads must be high enough for the cells (osteoblasts) to be irritated, … [Read more...]

Tobacco, Bone and Osteoporosis

It's not just your heart and lungs that are punished by a smoking habit Identifying the risks of tobacco use has been done by research scientists and reported by numerous media outlets, scientific journals, and even popular films are touching the subject. Most often tobacco use, depending if chewed or smoked, can increase the risks of lip and gum cancer, heart … [Read more...]
