Have you ever thought about if you have strong and healthy bones? Do you have concerns about breaks or fractures as a result of a fall or injury? Maybe you have a bone related health illness and want to know how to prevent or reverse the disease? Supporting your bone health can advance your overall health and wellness by improving your balance, posture, strength, power, agility and energy. Yes, this can all be done by having healthy eating habits or a medication. But what if there was another scientific way that allows you to grow and support healthy bones without pain, soreness or fatigue?
I had the privilege to speak with Caryn Semelka- Part Owner, Manager and Certified Session Coach of OsteoStrong Garden City, located in Long Island, NY where she uses science and technology to help people improve their bone health to attain a better quality of life.
Q: What is Osteostrong?
A: OsteoStrong is for people of all ages. It’s a unique place where you can go to improve your overall health by focusing on the foundation of your body: your skeletal system. It’s a scientifically-advanced, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, skeletal strengthening system.
Q: What is the science behind the Osteostrong method and how did it get started?
A: OsteoStrong is based on a principle called “osteogenic loading.” It has been known for over 100 years that the way to strengthen the skeletal system is with pressure. Through scientific research it was discovered that the stimulus, or amount of pressure, required to trigger growth of healthy bone tissue, known as “osteogenesis,” was 4.2 multiples of an individual’s body weight. This is an extraordinary amount of pressure and for most people isn’t possible to achieve. But, OsteoStrong has developed a unique system that allows for just about anyone at any age to safely experience the pressure of 4.2 times their own body weight and much more.
Q: What are the benefits of participating in Osteostrong?
A: People who are participating in this system right now are seeing rapid improvements in their physical performance. Individuals are also experiencing increased bone and muscle density, increased energy and strength, improved posture, agility, flexibility and balance. Additional benefits are a reversal or elimination of joint and back pain, an avoidance or reversal of osteoporosis and an avoidance or reversal of Type 2 Diabetes.
Q: What occurs during an Osteostrong session?
A: The OsteoStrong circuit consists of 4 different pieces of equipment. These machines enable “growth trigger events” through simulated force pressure, targeting a specific area of the body. Each session is guided by an OsteoStrong session coach, so an individual never goes through a session on their own.
Q: How often should one participate in an Osteostrong session?
A: An OsteoStrong session is just once per week and takes less than 15 minutes.
Q: Why does bone health matter?
A: Bones perform several important functions. They provide protection to internal organs, a frame to keep our bodies supported and allow us to move. They also produce red and white blood cells, store important minerals such as calcium and phosphorus, and aid in detoxification by removing heavy metals and other foreign elements from the blood. If your bones aren’t strong and healthy, then all of these functions are compromised.
Q: How can someone get started with Osteostrong?
A: Anyone can reach us by phone at (516) 243-9256 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
