If you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, this means your body does not create new bone fast enough to replace old bone that is naturally removed from your body. If not treated, osteoporosis will cause back pain, a stooped posture, and bones that break easily. Fortunately, there are different types of treatment available to you, two of which are listed below.
One way to treat osteoporosis is a bioDensity session. This is a natural way that does not use any type of drugs. You will see a technician that is trained in bioDensity sessions. You will see them approximately once a week and the session will last around 15 to 20 minutes.
During the session, the technician will show you specialized exercises and how to do them. While you do the exercises, you will be monitored closely. These exercises have certain movements that help activate your body's response to building bones.
You will sit in a chair that is designed for these exercises. You will be in a contracted position. This chair provides you with weight-bearing exercises to help stimulate bone growth. The bioDensity chair delivers this weight to different areas of your body. This is much better for people that have osteoporosis as weight-bearing exercises are very difficult to do if done the normal way.
Treatment From Your Doctor
There is also treatment your doctor will offer you. They will first do a bone density scan to determine how easily your bones would break. If they find the risk is not high, they will likely prescribe you medications that will help build up bone density. There are a variety of medications available and your doctor can go over these with you.
If you are a woman, the doctor may suggest you take estrogen, which is a hormone. Having low estrogen in your body can cause bone loss. Taking estrogen can be dangerous, however, as it increases your risk of developing blood clots, breast cancer, and endometrial cancer. Because of this, you would likely not take estrogen for a long period of time.
If the doctor determined that you are at risk of breaking bones, then there are much stronger medications they will prescribe to you. There are also injections that they may give you if you have bad side effects of the medication.
