The OsteoBall workout is for those who seek a safe, simple and readily available exercise strengthening program while also receiving the benefits associated with increased bone density.
How Does the OsteoBall Work?
The OsteoBall was developed by renowned osteoporosis medical expert and professor, Dr. Robert L. Swezey, MD, The OsteoBall is clinically proven to help build bone and muscles. It gives a full-body workout, without weights, using isometric exercises. OsteoBall is the easy, smart way to get and keep fit.
Build Bones Naturally
Exercise as a part of osteoporosis management is not often given the credit it is due. For many years, the recommended exercise was walking.
Weight Bearing Exercise
Weight bearing exercises have shown to enhance vertebral bone mineral density, but are not realistic for the majority of patients with osteoporosis. In those cases, a well-documented realistic exercise is the effective site-specific resistive exercise. This has been documented in a variety of animal studies as well as controlled human studies. Subjects with osteoporosis show a large response in bone mineralization from this exercise.
Resistive exercise can be accomplished by many methods, from weight lifting to exercise machines to elastic stretch bands, but a more easy, effective way would be to use the doctor-designed, clinically tested OsteoBall program.
