OSTEOPOROSIS TREATMENT

BIODENSITY

DIAGNOSIS

BIODENSITY IS HERE

SINCE 1986, DR. GAYLIS AND THE PRACTICE HAVE BEEN LEADERS IN THE UTILIZATION OF NEW DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS AND TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF OSTEOPOROSIS.

OSTEOPOROSIS CAN BE WELL MANAGED AND BOTH MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD BE SCREENED FOR THIS PREVENTABLE AND TRETABLE DISEASE.

A Non Pharmaceutical Option for Building Bone Density

Norman B. Gaylis is recognized as one of the country’s leaders in the field of arthritis and rheumatic diseases. He has been treating osteoporosis for over 30 years, during which time we went from having no treatment options except calcium and vitamin D to having multiple treatment options today. Many patients suffered fractures of the spine or other bones, because osteoporosis was like an epidemic affecting almost every postmenopausal woman to some extent.

“The good news is that, over the course of my career, there have been vast improvements in both the way the diagnosis of the disease is made using DXA scanning and management of the disease using early intervention.” – Dr. Gaylis

Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis

With the pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical treatments available today, we are able to significantly reduce the incidence of bone fracture and prevent bone loss from occurring.

OSTEOPOROSIS TREATMENT

For some people, the bioDensity machine will allow them to build bone without the need for medications. For others, it will work in combination with their medication to improve its effect with the hope that we can recapture enough bone to avoid the need to take chronic medications forever.

When participating in the bioDensity exercises, the force created is self-applied, keeping the participant safe. Participants are able to create force that is multiples of their body weight and much greater than that achieved with traditional resistance training. It is these multiples of body weight that create the force needed to achieve increases in bone mineral density.

Osteoporosis Medications: Forteo, Tymlos, Prolia, and Evenity.

The bioDensity improves bone health and reverses osteoporosis!

The bioDensity machine safely and effectively uses the principles of osteogenic loading to improve bone health and reverse osteoporosis.

This brief intensive exercise is performed on specially designed equipment and is recommended to be performed one time per week for 10 minutes from beginning to end. The self-applied force compresses the bone and then releases the compression. The bone responds by reinforcing its structure and creating a more dense, stronger matrix. To better understand the concept of this exercise, it is like taking Swiss cheese and squeezing it over and over again. Eventually, the holes in the cheese become smaller or disappear altogether when placed under this pressure.

Normal bone shows a pattern of strong interconnected plates of bone. In osteoporosis much of the bone is lost and the remaining bone has a weaker rod-like structure and is very fragile.

Based on the latest statement from the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) it is apparent that unfortunately half of women over the age of 50 suffer a fracture from osteoporosis. This is totally avoidable and AARDS and myself have for the last 30 years been trying to educate our patient population as to the ways to avoid this consequence by using the treatments offered at our facility.

This latest statement from NAMS is completely in line with our approach which is to reduce risk fractures by a combination of the following: Use appropriate non medical approaches when possible to prevent bone loss, encourage women to use estrogen in the absence of contraindications and most importantly to use the newer bone building medications as soon as bone loss is detected rather than waiting for bone loss to be advanced and for fracture risk to be very high. There was a previous reluctance to use these medications as an initial approach to treating bone loss, but rather the medications were used as last resort approach. We agree and support the latest statement from NAMS and will recommend treating bone loss as soon as it is discovered.

The bioDensity Advantage

Osteoporosis is a disease of the bone that makes a person’s bones weak and more likely to break and is often called a “silent disease” because you cannot feel your bones getting weaker.

One in two women and up to one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis. For women, the incidence is greater than that of heart attack, stroke and breast cancer combined.

By 2025, experts predict that osteoporosis will be responsible for three million fractures resulting in $25.3 billion in costs.

EFFECTIVE The compression of bone mass promotes improved bone health and increased muscular strength.
SAFE The force created is self-applied ensuring each exercise is within your comfort zone.
FAST AND CONVENIENT Each session requires less than 10 minutes, one time per week.
ACCURATE AND REALIABLE The HIPAA compliant, server-based system ensures your information follows you to any bio-Density location.
MEASURABLE RESULTS BioDensity performance reports are generated immediately after each session showing your progress from the beginning.
