This animation provides an overview of the management and treatment of osteoporosis. If your testing shows that you have osteoporosis, your doctor will work with you to create a treatment plan that can help improve your bone health and reduce your risk of complications. An osteoporosis treatment plan will likely include medications as well as lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, getting the right amount of calcium and vitamin D, exercise and staying active safely, and preventing falls. Watch to learn about the most common osteoporosis medications and how they can help slow the breakdown of bone in your body, or help to build new bone. If you have questions about your osteoporosis treatment plan, talk with your doctor or another member of your healthcare team.
