MODALITIES FOR OSTEOPOROSIS
& OSTEOPENIA

ADVANCED MODALITIES

Power Plate is a non-invasive, therapy-based treatment modality that uses a vibrating platform to produce natural, subconscious muscle contractions throughout the body. When you tense and flex, small vibrations are created in the bones surrounded by those muscles. This increases muscle strength by as much as 20 to 30% more than conventional strength training.

Power Plate In Physical Therapy

The treatment team at Kaizen Physical Therapy uses Power Plate machines to manage many diseases, such as:

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)

  • Parkinson’s disease

  • Cerebral palsy

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Patients report improvements in several areas, including:

  • Decreased pain

  • Recovery of damaged muscles

  • Improved lymph function

  • Improved circulation

  • Accelerated tissue recovery

  • Improved mood and activity levels

bioDensity is a safe, controlled therapeutic approach that builds strength and bone density in the same fashion as high-impact activity but without risk of injury. Called “maximal loading,” bioDensity exercises reduce the risk of fracture caused by high-intensity resistance and impact training, or HiRIT.

 

bioDensity equipment stimulates muscle groups and skeletal structures, and can be used for vertical lifts, chest presses, core pulls, and leg presses. Each session totals five to ten minutes per week.

 

All of our bioDensity sessions are supervised by a bioDensity certified professional. Patients receive performance reports to track their improvement.

bioDensity In Physical Therapy

Regular use of bioDensity improves bone health and strength, as well as muscular density. In fact, a record of unsolicited patient scans demonstrated an average bone mass gain of 4.5% for individuals in the program for three years.*  We use bioDensity to address:

  • Osteoporosis

  • Bone fractures

  • Type 2 diabetes

Like all therapies, bioDensity can be used as part of a health and exercise regimen designed to address bone health concerns and chronic disease, as well as quality of life.
