Did you know it’s impossible to achieve total health without a sufficient amount of skeletal impact?
Your bones perform many essential functions that rely on healthy impact as one of the fundamental requirements for optimal health.
If you don’t use your muscles, they start to grow weaker and are less effective. Bones work the same way. Without sufficient skeletal impact, they can become brittle and thin. So yes – it’s really that important to living an independent and quality life.
OrthoNOW®, the country’s premier network of immediate orthopedic care centers, offers a great technology for bone health called Juvent Health Micro-Impact Platform®. Juvent’s low-magnitude mechanical impulses passively exercise your bones and muscles, increasing blood flow, relieving pain, and helping increase strength.
The Juvent Platform’s micro-impacts provide soft, controlled impulses to the musculoskeletal system. Research demonstrates that these micro-impacts can help promote bone health, and potentially reduce the effects of osteoporosis.
It is impossible to achieve total health without a sufficient amount of skeletal impact. This revolutionary system is actually very simple. Patients simply stand on the Juvent Platform (about the size and shape of a bathroom scale) for 10 to 20 minutes a day.
Using the Juvent platform, available at OrthoNOW®, just three days a week has been shown to help improve blood flow, ease joint, knee and back pain, and increase stability.
Hormones protect against bone loss, once these hormones are obstructed, bones become less dense and break more easily, leading to an increased risk of fractures and broken bones,” said Dr. Badia.
Our OrthoNOW Rehabilitation Center provides a private outpatient clinical setting for physical and occupational therapy where quality of care and patient satisfaction are our primary goals. (305) 537-7275 to make an appointment.
