I have done some research on other osteoporosis drugs and just the thought of putting those drugs in my body scares me. They all have side affects, which I know doesn’t affect everyone but I don’t want to be the one that it does. My PT also does osteostrong and has had success with it. She tried this after doing all the exercises, weight lifting etc. which showed no improvement in her bone density. Osteostrong is expensive and not covered by insurance, but it’s drug free. And yes my research and visit to Osteostrong indicates it increases bone strength as well as helping with balance.
