The Bone Health Epidemic: Why is it important?

We ensure an accurate clinical assessment has been taken which allows us to assess the pathology and movement characteristics of your injury. We provide focused treatment for active bodies at our physiotherapy clinics in Mayfair and Kensington.

An accurate diagnosis of what is contributing to your pain or injury is important to give you a sense of control over your injury. We combine a hands on approach with specific exercise to help you recover faster. This may include mobilisation, manipulation, tissue work and needling if appropriate. We use a combination of movement based therapies and strength work using modern equipment to aid your recovery.

Our belief is that all patients should be treated like elite athletes. We have experts to help our clients deal with persistent pain, hypermobility, spinal conditions and all peripheral limb conditions. We use a Clinical Pilates approach as part of our rehabilitation and our sister company Mayfair Pilates delivers this bespoke service.

Our Approach to Optimising Bone Health

As we know bone mineral density drops by 1-2% every year after reaching its peak lifetime bone mass around the age of 30, it is critical to address the modifiable factors that contribute to our bone health. We are here to support you on all fronts with our specialist care.

1. Nutrition: We provide guidance on a diet rich in calcium, vitamin D, and other essential nutrients. Foods like dairy products, leafy greens, and fortified foods can help maintain bone health.

2. Exercise: We promote weight-bearing exercises, such as walking, jogging, and tailored resistance training, essential for maintaining and improving bone density.

3. Lifestyle Modification: Our programs include support for avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, which can significantly improve bone health.

4. Medical Interventions: For those at high risk, we will involve a Specialist in the field to identify if you need more medical support with medication or supplements.

What is EchoLight REMS?

EchoLight REMS (Radiofrequency Echographic Multi Spectrometry) is an advanced diagnostic tool used to identify individuals at risk of bone-related conditions.

It uses non-invasive ultrasound technology to scan and provide precise measurements of bone density and quality (T-score and Z-score).

This enables our team to detect early signs of osteoporosis and other bone health issues, allowing for early intervention before significant bone deterioration occurs, thereby enabling timely preventive measures.

It is painless, radiation-free and provides reliable results within minutes, allowing for immediate discussion and treatment planning.

How does BioDensity V5 Machine treat bone health?

One of the most promising advancements in bone health technology at Mayfair Health is the BioDensity V5 machine. Following detection with our EchoLight, this innovative device offers a non-pharmacological approach to improving bone density through high-impact resistance training. Here’s how it works:

1. High-Intensity Load: By applying Wolff’s Law, the BioDensity V5 machine allows users to perform specific exercises that apply a high-intensity load to the bones, stimulating the body’s natural process of bone regeneration.

2. Safe and Controlled Environment: The BioDensity V5 machine provides an osteogenic load into our upper body and lower body through 4 movement patterns. The intensity of the isometric load can be precisely adjusted to match the user’s capabilities and needs, meaning that the process is very safe for the user.

3. Short Sessions: Sessions often lasting less than 10 minutes, making it a time-efficient way to enhance bone density.

4. Real-time Feedback: The machine offers real-time feedback and tracks progress over time, allowing you to monitor improvements in bone density.

Who is this service suitable for?

Our specialised technology are designed for individuals of all ages and functional abilities. Whether you are looking to build a foundation of strong bones during your younger years, maximising your peak bone mass at around the age of 30, preventing any signs of bone density deterioration as you age, or reducing your risk of fractures for those with osteoporosis, our comprehensive bone health care package can benefit you and your loved ones.

What is Physio Therapy?

Physiotherapy helps relief pain, restore movement and optimise body functions when an individual is affected by musculoskeletal pain and disability – problems related to muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, joints and nerves. It helps by promoting injury recovery, correcting muscle imbalance, managing pain and associated symptoms and educating about healthy living. The aim is to restore your confidence in everyday tasks, enhance exercise performance and promote longevity. 

What does a Physiotherapist do?

Physiotherapists specialise in assessing and treating individuals affected by pain conditions, sports injuries and musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Once they have identified the root cause of the problems, they will facilitate healing processes and gradually get you back to pre-injury functions through exercise prescription, rehabilitation pilates, shockwave therapy, dry needling and acupuncture, manual therapy and education. They may also refer you to other services such as diagnostic imaging, blood tests, nutrition and dietetics, personal training and other medical investigations as appropriate.

Are Physios doctors?

Physiotherapists in the United Kingdon are highly skilled professionals, but they are not considered to be doctors.

What to wear to a Physio appointment?

In order to do a comprehensive assessment, your physiotherapist will need to be able to access the area of your specific injury or pain problem. You are recommended to wear clothes you feel comfortable moving in, such as shorts, strappy tops and vests. If your issue is linked with a sport like running, you are advised to bring along your running trainers as your physiotherapist may perform a running assessment.

We have changing room and shower facilities, you are most welcome to use should you require these.

How long is a Physio appointment?

Physiotherapy treatment sessions can vary in length depending on your preference and the type of treatment. You have the option to choose 30, 45 or 60 minute appointments. We recommend initial appointments to be 45 or 60 minutes to allow time for an in-depth assessment and treatment.

Can a Physio help arthritis?

Yes, physiotherapists can help to manage symptoms of arthritis. We can improve joint stiffness, and improve muscle weakness and reduce inflammation through exercise therapy, soft tissue release, mobilisation, acupuncture and taping. We will provide education and advice on ways to relief pain and manage your condition.

Can a Physio help sciatica?

Sciatica refers to leg pain radiating down the back of the leg triggered by irritation of the sciatic nerve and physiotherapists can help identify and treat the source of irritation. Treatment may include soft tissue release, joint mobilisation, acupuncture and exercise therapy. We will also provide advice on how to relief discomfort by modifying your activities. Once the pain subsides, we look at more long-term management of the condition and how to reduce the risk of it reoccurring.

Can a Physio help neck pain?

Physiotherapists are highly skilled at treating individuals with neck pain. The combination of individualised exercise prescription and manual therapy can alleviate pain and stiffness and improve neck range of motion. We can also help you develop dynamic strengthen in the neck and its supporting musculature to improve your overall posture.

Can a Physio help back pain?

The cause of back pain is multifactorial and complex as our spine involves a series of interlocking elements including the vertebae, discs, facet joints, ligaments and muscles. Due to the complexity of the condition, an episode of back pain requires a tailored rehabilitation programme to restore movement and functions. Physiotherapy is effective for back pain as it not only relieves your pain, but also addresses underlying cause of your problem to reduce the chance of it returning. Treatment may involve exercise therapy, soft tissue release and joint mobilisation.
