Osteoporosis Treatment

Osteoporosis is a condition that makes the bones brittle and is often not detected until a bone breaks. If you have risk factors for osteoporosis, make an appointment and consider these treatment options.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis causes the bones to weaken and become so fragile that minor stressors like a fall can cause fractures. These fractures commonly occur on the hip, wrist, or spine. While osteoporosis can affect men and women, post-menopausal women are at a higher risk because of decreased estrogen levels. Estrogen plays an important role in bone health and maintaining bone density. Steroid use – corticosteroids specifically – is also linked to osteoporosis.

How is Osteoporosis Diagnosed?

Bone thinning can be measured with a traditional bone density test also referred to as a DEXA scan. In addition to a bone density scan, there are labs that can be measured to detect bone loss or the rate of bone turnover.

How is Osteoporosis Treated?

Several medications can treat osteoporosis, but there are also a few lifestyle habits that you can adjust to prevent osteoporosis from developing. Exercises like weight-bearing and those involving balance and posture will also strengthen your bones and prevent the risk of fracture as you age. You should also limit your alcohol intake and avoid smoking since these substances can speed up bone loss.

If you have low bone density and are at risk of osteoporosis, the following medications and treatments can help:


Taking bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may simultaneously improve their bone health. Both Estrogen and testosterone can increase bone density and can be helpful in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis.

Vitamin D Supplementation

Optimizing Vitamin D levels are an important part of the treatment for improving bone density. Vitamin D can be obtained through dietary sources or sun exposure. Most people have a Vitamin D level below the optimal level. By replacing Vitamin D adequately, we can improve bone health.
