As the prevalence of technological gadgets has increased, physical activity levels of our children have diminished. This trend defies the fact that most people develop the majority of their bone and muscle mass between the ages of 13 and 20, development which benefits greatly from physical activity. This reduction can negatively affect bone health, often years later, resulting in an increasing number of younger people diagnosed with osteopenia and osteoporosis. Bone health refers to the strength of the bones. Healthy bones are determined by bone density. It is crucial for parents to consider the bone health of their children as an important component of overall health.
Kyle Zagrodzky, Founder and President of OsteoStrong and well versed in bone health, identified specific habits for children to promote a healthy skeletal system. stating that “high impact play or sports produce the best results because the central nervous system requires high levels of pressure in order to trigger osteogenesis, which is the growth of healthy new bone tissue.” OsteoStrong’s techniques build upon this premise.
Zagrodzky was an experienced franchisor who started the company in partnership with John Jaquish, a Ph.D. who originally invented the osteogenic loading device to help his mother completely reverse her osteoporosis at the age of 80.
Local entrepreneur, Stacey Phillips decided to bring an OsteoStrong location to the area because it had scientific research results regarding multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia. Since it is a non-pharmaceutical solution, it forces your body to use its own resources to heal itself.
