Bone Density

Active Couple

According to The National Institute on Aging, over 30 million people have low bone mass–and that’s just in America. Why so many? And why is it such a big deal? There’s a few reasons.

First, low bone mineral density in Essexville and Saginaw can lead to osteoporosis, a condition that can cause bones to become fragile and easier to break.

Second, bone is living tissue that continuously changes. As we age, existing bone breaks down faster than it is replaced, and the rate of bone loss accelerates. Hormonal changes can also affect bone density, which is why women are more likely to have lower bone mass than men, especially after menopause. But there’s a way to increase bone density that is both safe and effective.

Michigan Health Centers is proud to utilize the bioDensity machine. Its revolutionary equipment represents a quantum leap forward in bone treatment. Research has proven that activities that involve impact force/loading are most effective when it comes to maintaining or increasing bone mass. When a 120 pound patient uses bioDensity, they’re placed in positions of optimal bio-mechanics, which can allow for multiples of body weight. So while utilizing bioDensity, a patient could achieve leg/hip loading of 1200 pounds, which is 10 multiples of her weight.

This treatment will compress and strengthen bone, tendons and ligaments. Bones are the support system of your body, and boosting their density will give you a longer and happier life. Is bioDensity treatment right for you? Contact Michigan Health Centers for a free consultation and find out today.
