What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a common skeletal condition that affects bone metabolism and drastically reduces bone density and mass. It can go unnoticed for a long time, but as it progresses, the bones become brittle and susceptible to easy breaks, which can severely affect mobility and quality of life.

How it develops

The body is constantly transforming and rebuilding bone mass, naturally removing old or damaged bone tissue and replenishing it with newly formed tissue. With Osteoporosis, the bone tissue cells break down faster than they are replaced, leading to a steady decrease in bone density.

Using drug therapies to counteract the effects of Osteoporosis means that the drugs must be injected or administered daily, often for years at a time. A frequent side effect of this type of medication are health complaints in the gastrointestinal tract, and in some cases even more severe side effects, such as jaw necrosis.

How MBST Treats Osteoporosis

Magnetic Resonance Therapy is used to increase metabolism and re-trigger the body’s repair mechanisms and regeneration processes. MBST® stimulates specific cells at a molecular level, encouraging your bone tissue cells to regenerate more quickly to replace the lost cells. This regenerative process helps to rebuild the bone density whilst reducing brittleness, offering anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects, allowing for a more active life.

No Drugs

No Bisphosphonates

No Injections

No I.V. Infusions

In many cases, MBST can prevent the need for surgery and longterm medication.

“I first started working with MBST 15 years ago, and I still remember my first patient, a woman diagnosed with Osteoporosis. When she was downgraded to Osteopenia, I don’t know who was happier, her or me!”
– Beverley Ashdown, Ashdown clinic LTD Founder and Podiatrist

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the side effects of MBST therapy?

There have been no reported side effects of MBST therapy since it was first applied internationally in 1998.

Will I immediately feel better after treatment?

The effects of Osteoporosis build up over long periods of time, so they cannot be counteracted overnight. However, scientific evaluations show that in more than 80% of cases, patient’s pain was significantly reduced after 3-5 therapy sessions.

How long does the effect of the MBST therapy last, and can the treatment be repeated?

Patient data shows a significant increase in bone density one year after treatment. If necessary, MBST treatment can be repeated any number of times, but the need for top ups is uncommon.

Is MBST available on the NHS?

MBST therapy is a private treatment and is not currently available on the NHS.

NICE recognises MBST (MRT) as a safe treatment and is registered by the MHRA. You can find our registration here.
