Treating Osteoporosis with PST
Irish women are five times more likely to break their bones now than they were in the 1960’s.Currently, more women die from complications of osteoporotic fractures than from all cancers of the ovary, uterus and cervix combined.
Osteoporosis means porous bones. It is a silent disease that is not usually not diagnosed until a fracture occurs. Bone is a living tissue that is constantly being removed and replaced and as we get older, more bone is naturally lost than is replaced.
This causes bones to become fragile and break easily, e.g. through a bump or a fall. Also, if you have one low trauma fracture, this doubles your risk of another fracture due to osteoporosis.Osteopenia is the early stage of osteoporosis. Having osteopenia places a person at risk of developing osteoporosis. A diagnosis of osteopenia is a warning that you must start taking care of your bones and that prevention methods need to be put in place.
As a treatment for osteoporosis and osteopenia, PST is the natural alternative to medication. It is being applied for the first time in Ireland to stimulate the rejuvenation of bone in patients.

This is done by re-stimulating osteoblast formation (bone forming cells) and this replaces the bone loss created by osteoporosis. This re-stimulation also retains proteoglycan & chondrocyte composition within the bones and also the cartilage between the bones. Therefore, post PST treatment, ranges of movements in the spine and hips are greatly increased and postural height is restored – eliminating Kyphosis of the upper back or the Dowagers Hump presentation.
