Bone & Joint Health

Fitness for Health’s Bone and Joint Health Program is a revolutionary 12-week program for adults and seniors to help you safely and comfortably:

  • Increase bone density
  • Improve posture
  • Increase strength, balance, and stability
  • Counteract the effects of osteoporosis, osteopenia, and aging
  • Strengthen joints

How It Works

Our program elicits results faster and more effectively than traditional exercise or pharmaceuticals through two state-of-the-art fitness technologies:

bioDensityTM

Weight-bearing exercises are the key to stimulating bone growth, and the greater the weight applied, the better the results. bioDensity delivers weight—known as osteogenic loading—at multiples of your bodyweight, and beyond what is typically achieved in basic exercise.  Studies show after one year of using bioDensity, on average, patients experience bone density gains of seven percent in the hip and 7.7 percent in the spine—results exponentially higher than those seen in traditional bone density interventions (Jaquish, 2013). Research has also shown significant stability and functional movement improvements with multiple populations. After each session, you’ll receive a Performance Report detailing and analyzing your overall progress and offering tips to enhance your program.

Research has shown that activities that involve impact level force/loading are most useful for increasing or maintaining bone mass1. bioDensity places the user/patient in positions of optimal biomechanics, which then can allow for loading that is multiples of bodyweight, these loads are near or equal to the levels seen in impact loading

Power PlateTM

Power Plate is a whole-body vibration platform that allows for reflexive engagement of the neuromuscular system at rapid and repeatable oscillation. This intervention has been clinically shown to increase balance and stability in both healthy and aging-frail populations.

bioDensity In the News

bioDensity was featured during the health segment of Chicago’s Fox-32 Midday news show. The segment focused on the origin of bioDensity, and how Dr. John Jaquish developed the first device to treat his mother’s osteoporosis. After reversing her condition, now bioDensity helps thousands of people worldwide.

 bioDensity Testimonials

“In my practice, we use bioDensity as a part of an all encompassing wellness program that includes dietary recommendations and other modalities. Patients see the documented benefits of osteogenic loading on their bioDensity performance reports which enhances compliance. Patients enjoy coming back every week for the osteogenic loading experience, which is fast, safe, and convenient, but most of all they know they are improving their bone health, and general health without the concerns of pharmacological side effects. The psychology of using bioDensity is profound because the patient really sees how they can be put in control of a large aspect of their health, which will provide benefit for the rest of their lives.”

“I was fortunate enough to be one of the initial 400 test subjects for Osteogenic Loading via the bioDensity Device. As a Physician I realized that the vast majority of the population should be using this technology to access the human bodys own natural process for creating bone mass, and building tremendous levels of muscular strength. I have always been involved with fitness, and have been an advocate of the curative nature of exercise, but no modality I have come across has the potential to change the lives of so many millions of people like this one. In my own personal use I saw a force production increase from my neuro-musculoskeletal system of 119% in thirty-two months. Others that I observed in the program had similar responses, along with improved bone mass density and posture.”

“The principles of this bioDensity device are based on published research of mechano-transduction, meaning that loading of the body creates an adaptive response. This research has existed for over 100 years. The cleverness of the device was the level of loading the individual was able to receive while ina safe and controlled environment. Once learning about this device, I not only prescribed patients exercise/therapy sessions with it, but I also engaged in the use of the device myself. My personal use saw an increase in spinal density and maintenance in hip density within normal T-score range. The spine was osteopenic and was less so after bioDensity use. Equally important was that my full body force production capability increased by 169% in the eight months of using the osteogenic loading protocol, just one time, either weekly or bi-weekly. Since this initial experience I have seen other positive bone mass density outcomes with the use of this device, and I am excited to share my experience so other practitioners like me can use this knowledge with their patients.”
