In the latter half of the nineteenth century, an anatomist and physician named Julius Wolff theorized, and later produced results that followed the principles of mechanotransduction: the remodeling of bones in response to loading, or weighting. Essentially, what he sought to prove was that healthy bones will adapt to the loads under which they have been placed.
For over a century, it has been studied and well-documented that bones that experience more pressure through certain types of exercise throughout one’s life, get stronger. Stronger bones help prevent fractures. However, until recently, no study was done to show how much pressure was actually needed to build strong bones. Is taking a walk good enough? How about yoga or golf? These are great questions and the good news is that we now know the answer. As it turns out, a study out of a hospital in Bristol, England in 2012 found that unless subjects experienced 4.2 multiples of their own body weight, their bones wouldn’t get any stronger. That may seem like a ridiculous feat for most people … unless you’ve heard about OsteoStrong.
Today, Tom Moffett is proud to be a part of the OsteoStrong franchise dedicated to reversing cases of osteopenia and osteoporosis - naturally.
“When I opened OsteoStrong a year and a half ago, I had just sold a business and was looking for a business that would help people,” he says. “As it turns out, the field I chose has been a life-changer and an incredible blessing - for myself and so many of our members as well.”
An avid motorcycle racer in his younger days, Tom has experienced his fair share of broken bones over the years - old injuries that were compounded by arthritis made pain management an ongoing issue as he aged into his 50s. A DEXA (Dual X-Ray Absortiometry) Scan, used to measure bone density, revealed that Tom had osteopenia (bone density that is lower than normal peak density, but not low enough to be classified as osteoporosis).
Like many people, Tom believed only post-menopausal women got osteoporosis, but he quickly learned that this wasn’t the case. The International Osteoporosis Foundation reports that osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually and that 1 in 3 women over age 50 and 1 in 5 men over age 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures.
The patented OsteoStrong modality is, remarkably, not based in pharmaceuticals, workouts, or diets. Using their unique device, Tom and his staff put pressure on the bones in a safe manner that triggers the body’s neuro-adaptive response to naturally engineer more bone tissue and muscle fiber.
“Our members come in once a week for about 15 minutes, which includes a seven-minute hydromassage,” he explains. “It’s easy on us, and easy on our clients. When people thank you for giving them their lives back - it just doesn’t get any better than that.”
Tom recently incorporated another natural modality into his center - PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field) therapy, which pulses an electromagnetic field through the body, “essentially exercising your body’s cells.”
“The earth’s magnetic field is not as strong as it used to be, and we’re weakening its effects more and more with the shoes we wear and their rubber soles, our cars with rubber tires,” says Tom. “PEMF charges your 75 trillion cells, increases blood flow, oxygenates your blood, regenerates cells, and helps to detoxify the entire body.”
Backed by more than 40 years of clinical studies, researchers believe that the pulsed signal produced by the PEMF nudges the body’s chemistry so the healing process may proceed more rapidly. With benefits like reduced pain, improved sleep, better absorption of nutrients, and improved athletic endurance, it isn’t any wonder that OsteoStrong’s client base has grown. The following client testimonial is echoed by scores of happy, pain-free clients: “Things that were kind of maybe aching or hurting before, I don’t have have those pains or aches now. I have a lot more tingling and sensation in the areas where I didn’t have before. A lot more movement in my hand. So it has helped me tremendously.”
“One of our goals is to live the best quality of life we can as we age,” says Tom. “At OsteoStrong, each brief session is designed to help you naturally achieve healthy joints, strong bones, and better balance and flexibility. This allows you to do more of what you want to do – to enjoy a pain-free, healthy, active life. For example, there’s nothing like being able to play with your grandchildren or take a brisk hike in nature.
“Many people buy into the notion that they will have to sacrifice many of the activities they love as they age. Many seniors learn to simply accept the fact that their bones, muscles, and balance are going to weaken as they age. They figure that new aches and pain are just the way it’s going to be from here out… This is not the case with many of our OsteoStrong members.
“It’s true that everyone eventually feels the effects of bone and muscle loss after age 30. But, at OsteoStrong, our goal is not to slow down the process of aging like what you’d expect from working out every day. Our goal is to actually reverse the process of aging. In fact, we measure your progress by looking at the results you achieve. Our systems are backed by science and thousands of testimonials from people of all age groups that confirm that your bones can get stronger and your agility can improve.”
