What is OsteoStrong?
A Unique System For Developing Your Skeletal Strength
OsteoStrong works for people of all ages by helping you strengthen the foundation of your body, the skeletal system.
In just 10 minutes per week, you increase strength & bone density, improve posture, balance and athletic performance.
OsteoStrong impacts the entire body in many ways using a process known as Osteogenic Loading.
Sessions are quick, painless, and results are measurable and happen quickly.
Research-driven. Minimum effort. Maximum results.
OsteoStrong sessions utilize a series of devices that allow axial compression of bone to emulate the effect of impact, which is called Osteogenic Loading. Because of the optimized positioning of the human body, loading forces go through the human bone that are far higher than those seen in daily activity or weight training. Heavy loading is already understood and recommended by all international bodies of medical education, but at OsteoStrong, we make it safer.
In fact, we’ve known for over 100 years that Osteogenic Loading works. In the late 1800’s, Dr. Julius Wolff discovered that bones will adapt to the loads under which they are placed (Wolff’s Law). What we didn’t know until the 2012 Deere & Tobias study (to the right) was that there is a minimum threshold to triggering osteogenesis. 4.2 multiples of your body weight is the minimum required force to trigger bone growth in the hip joint (the most important place to avoid fracture) and peak forces with adults in conventional resistance exercise only show 1.26 to 1.54 multiples of body weight.

The OsteoStrong Technology:
Spectrum was invented by the Father of Osteogenic Loading, Dr. John Jaquish, Ph.D. Dr. Jaquish is the Chief Science Advisor for OsteoStrong and author of Osteogenic Loading. Dr. Jaquish has been a frequent speaker at the World Congress on Osteoporosis and is on the board of American Bone Health. His contributions to the OsteoStrong brand have been invaluable in bringing this technology to the world.
OsteoStrong uses the Spectrum System to deliver unprecedented results. Spectrum is first-in-class of a new category devices called Robotic Musculoskeletal Development System (RMDS).
The Spectrum System consists of four modalities as demonstrated in the videos below: 1) Upper Growth Trigger, 2) Lower Growth Trigger, 3) Core Growth Trigger and 4) Postural Growth Trigger.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I try a free session to see if I like it?
Absolutely! We want you to experience a free session so that you can see how quickly your body will respond to our system. Call us at 424.331.1404 or CLICK HERE to request your FREE SESSION.
Do I need to schedule?
Our sessions are by appointment, with only 1 to 3 members at the same time. There is always a carefully selected and highly trained certified session coach assisting you.
How long until I start feeling the results?
Results vary from person to person, but the following are some general rules for what our members experience:
Joint and back pain: generally, people experience a sensation of joint and back pain relief in 1 to 12 sessions. Of course, with any physical condition that causes you concern, we recommend that you ask your doctor prior to engaging in sessions at OsteoStrong.
Once your pain is gone, regular sessions will continue to develop the joint, bone and surrounding support tissue. It is highly recommended that you continue sessions to help prevent the return of your joint and back pain.
Skeletal strength or bone density increases can only be seen on a bone density scan. It usually takes 6-12 months from the time you start with OsteoStrong® for your DXA scan to show increases in bone density.
Balance improvements. Most people notice improvements in their personal balance in just one to two sessions and it generally improves for several sessions afterward.
Muscular Strength. Most people, regardless of fitness level, feel the gains in overall strength in about 4 sessions. Regular sessions seem to continue strength gains for many years. Some people may have periods of plateauing in their measured strength gains. Have patience when this happens to you!
How much does it cost?
Prices may vary for each location, because of leasing, personnel costs, etc. We have different month-to-month plans that go from $199 to $389 with unlimited add-ons included. Here is how our prices compare with other popular therapies:
Does health insurance cover OsteoStrong?
Traditional health insurance in the United States does not typically cover OsteoStrong sessions. However, Medical Savings Accounts can be used in many cases. Also, OsteoStrong sessions are generally less expensive than most insurance co-pays.
Is it safe to do OsteoStrong sessions if I have osteoporosis?
Yes, many showing T-scores as low as -4 from their DXA scans do sessions at OsteoStrong. Even in these extreme cases, members have completely reversed their osteoporosis without medication. As with all medical conditions, we encourage people to consult with their physician prior to starting sessions at OsteoStrong.
Does OsteoStrong do anything for weight loss?
Yes, it does, but it is very minimal. The primary engine of calorie burning is muscles, and at OsteoStrong we trigger tissue growth in the muscle fiber. With new tissue, people process glucose better and burn more calories. But diet is the heart of weight loss, being responsible for about 90% of weight loss. We can help improve the engines that help the body burn more calories and process glucose a little better. True weight loss is going to come from improving your diet.
“No modality I have ever come across has the potential to change the lives of so many people as this one does.”
