We are excited to herald the dawn of a new age in healthcare in Leeds with the inauguration of the city’s first clinic dedicated to bone health and musculoskeletal conditions.

This trailblazing initiative, brought to life by Gary Rhodes, Nichola Taylor, Professor Nick Harris, and Professor Ernst Schilders, is poised to reshape the way osteoporosis and sarcopenia are diagnosed and treated in the region.

DexaStrong, located in central Leeds, is a high-end private clinic that specialises in bone and muscle health. It is the first of its kind in Yorkshire, offering a range of services under one roof.

These services include DEXA bone and muscle density scanning, body composition scanning for muscle and fat composition, and bone and muscle-loading therapy with Power Plate whole-body vibration technology.

Armed with advanced DEXA technology, the clinic is a beacon of our steadfast commitment to superior patient care. “Our CQC approval is a testament to our dedication to transforming lives through education, early diagnosis, and effective treatment of osteoporosis,” asserts Gary Rhodes.

Elevating Healthcare Standards

The clinic is committed to tackling osteoporosis and sarcopenia, offering top-tier non-pharmaceutical diagnosis and customised treatment plans to patients.

As the clinic swings open its doors, it sets a new benchmark for healthcare in Leeds, offering a comprehensive suite of osteoporosis diagnosis and treatment options in one location.

With half of women over 50 at risk of bone fractures due to poor bone health, these services are crucial to their health and wellbeing.

Gary Rhodes underscores the importance of robust musculoskeletal health, stating, “The stronger we become, the more stable we are on our feet, enhancing our quality of life in the long term and ensuring our independence.”

DEXA scans are the gold standard for assessing bone and muscle density, and the DexaStrong clinic offers Leeds’s first exclusively-private DEXA scanning service.

Scans are performed by trained professionals, and clients can opt to receive an Enhanced Report of their results. DexaStrong’s bone and muscle-loading therapy is offered as an alternative to high-impact exercise, aiming to improve strength, balance, and posture.

Comprehensive Services and Patient-Centric Approach

The clinic offers a wide array of services, including early diagnosis of osteoporosis using DEXA technology, personalised treatment plans, and patient education.

The launch of this specialised bone and muscle clinic marks a significant milestone in the battle against osteoporosis and sarcopenia, with DexaStrong’s unwavering dedication to patient-centric care leading the charge.

“Our CQC approval is not just a recognition of our clinic’s standards, but a symbol of a new era in bone and musculoskeletal health management in our city,” says Gary Rhodes. “This recognition fuels our mission to revolutionise bone and muscle healthcare in Leeds and beyond.”

The DexaStrong team is composed of medical experts actively involved in research at Leeds Beckett University.

The clinic’s mission is to detect, diagnose, treat and educate people about bone and muscle health & strengthening to keep the public as healthy as possible into old age.
