The prevention of osteoporosis can, quite literally, save a woman’s life. And yet, lack of time and lack of knowledge about how to prevent osteoporosis prevent many women from making any real progress against this disease.
A Naperville/Lisle-based chiropractor wants to change all that.
Dr. Perry Cammisa, a certified biomechanics specialist and founder of Ultimate ChiroCare, knows that the best strategy for the prevention of osteoporosis involves both strength training and weight bearing exercises. When a force is placed on the bones, bones respond by adding cells and becoming denser. Additionally, muscle strength affects the level of force that can be placed on the bone during exercise. By combining the two approaches, a woman will get the best results possible.
To help women achieve this goal, Cammisa has incorporated the bioDensity system into his practice – a new exercise technology that builds both muscle strength and bone density in a revolutionary way.
The equipment builds on the philosophy that isometric exercise – the practice of holding a muscle contraction without moving the joint – produces more force on a muscle that a contraction generated by lifting weights.
The bioDensity system involves four simple yet comprehensive isometric exercises: the chest press, leg press, core pull-up and vertical lift. A woman performs each exercise on the equipment, as hard as she can, for 5 seconds. The equipment’s display panel informs the woman of the force she is exerting. All four exercises take less than one minute to complete and are performed once a week. Although this is a high intensity workout, the woman doesn’t have time to break a sweat, doesn’t need a shower, and doesn’t even need to change her clothes. And because the workout is so efficient, there is no soreness afterward.
Because each exercise is stationary and the woman determines the force she uses, there is virtually no potential for injury, making it an excellent option for any age or fitness level.
Most dramatic, however, are the results. The system measures and tracks each workout and produces a complete printed report after each session. Indeed, the company that developed bioDensity measured four years of testing on clients performing more than 100,000 sets of exercises. The average client age was 52. After the first year, clients saw, on average, a 73% measurable gain in muscle strength. By the second year, the gain had jumped to 138%. By the fourth year, clients saw a 295% improvement in muscle strength – an astonishing achievement that is difficult for traditional workouts to match.
Cammisa calls this the “20 second advantage.” He adds, “People still think that spending hours at the gym is the best way to achieve fitness. We need to change that mindset.”
Currently the only chiropractor in Illinois to offer bioDensity, Cammisa offers free personal consultations. Schedule a visit today by calling Ultimate ChiroCare at 630-778-9000 or go to http://www.ultimatechirocare.com.
