Treating Osteoporosis: What works for you?

I was reading about osteoporosis vibration belt. Wondering if anyone has discussed this treatment technique with their doctors. They say "Low Intensity Vertical vibration machines are effective for osteoporosis. The low intensity vertical vibration machines are the ones that produce a maximum of 0.3 G’s". Maybe as an add-on to Tymlos or other osteoporosis meds.

I have not heard about this but will
Check into it

Hi @elenamayo I purchased a Whole Body Vibration Plate exerciser that has three programs for "improving bone density" after reading a review paper, "Whole-body vibration exercise in postmenopausal osteoporosis", Magdalena Weber-Rajek, et al. I started using it in August, did two 15 minute programs a day, then went down to one, and now I'm going back up to two. I'll be able to get another dexascan in 18 mos. so will know the results, but it has really firmed my leg muscles up, more than the strength training exercises I've done. Amazon has a variety of these exercisers, I chose the Eilison Bolt. Whole Body Vibration Exercise isn't appropriate for everyone – so it's important to research it.
