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. For example, Darien and Greenwich's locations are more expensive than Nashville and cheaper than NYC. We have different month-to-month plans starting at $199, with discounts for seniors. 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.
