There was a Chiropractor's office in Columbus, Ohio that had a BioDensity Machine through Osteostrong. Osteostrong took the machine back. Me and many others with Osteoporis were making great strides with the machine. My back pain was completely gone. There are many others that went from Osteoporis to Osteopenia. I can't seem to find anyone at Osteostrong that can help get a machine back in Columbus. Can anyone help with information? Everyone with Osteoporis/Osteopenia… read more
Bodyfitness, I also did some research on this. I thought this is not for me. One could really do harm to your body. I will stick to my exercises and physical therapy when needed.
Girls just remember that osteoporosis and osteopenia exercises are weight bearing, not lifting, and you have to work with gravity that builds bone density. When you sit at a machine your core,and that includes your lower back muscles, does not work. When you push or pull you work with resistance. For osteo you are only allowed to do 10% of resistance exercise on your program. Think of pulling and pushing, while your bones are not stabilized and in alignment with the rest of your body. With unstable joints and vertebrae, this can cause pain and problems. I did some research on the machine and I recognised the movements. I personally after all my studies and research will not do that machine. There was some bad reviews on that machine as well. Be careful out there and look after yourself. Greetings
Please let us know if the Osteostrong machine actually improves your bone density.
In all the different types of yoga there will be certain poses that is not allowed in osteo training. The same goes for Pilates training. I will look at a few books for you tomorrow (21h30) here in SA. Then I will let you know which ones are the best to help you safely. In the meantime don't bend with a round back, no twisting of the spine, no flexion on the spine or neck and no arching of the lower back. Please stay safe till we chat again. I'm signing off for the day.
See if you can get a Personal Trainer that is a registered Pilates for Seniors trainer. Or if you lucky to get one that is a registered Osteoporosis trainer. There is not a lot of them. In South Africa it is only me tthat is qualified and did the training course. If you can't get anybody, I will recomend some good exercise books for you. Hard work to train yourself correctly because you need someone to watch your posture and alignment on each exercise. Lots of hugs.
