Treatment may include:


Medications may include:

  • Pain medicine—such as acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Bisphosphonates—usually by tablet or by injection
  • Calcitonin —administered by injection or nasal spray


Surgery may be required if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Bone fracture
  • Severe degenerative arthritis
  • Bone deformity


Recommendations include:

  • Calcium , usually about 1,000-1,500 mg per day
  • Adequate exposure to sunshine to promote vitamin D production in the skin (but limit time in the sun to prevent sun burning, wrinkling, and aging)
  • Intake of adequate vitamin D, usually about 400 mg per day (more may be needed in older people)
  • Regular exercise to maintain skeletal health, joint mobility, and normal body weight
  • Avoidance of excess mechanical stress on involved bones
  • A splint for an area at high risk for fracture
