20 Signs and Treatments for Osteoporosis

16. Lift Weights.

If you are at risk or have osteoporosis, it is important to strengthen your bones as much as possible. One treatment option you can try is weight lifting throughout the week. Every muscle contraction your body performs (especially when lifting weight) pulls on a bone or many bones in your body, depending on where the muscle attaches. For this reason, lifting weights is ideal for anyone who needs to add strength to the muscles and to the bones. You have to be very cautious lifting weights when you have osteoporosis since your bones are already weak, so make sure to lift light weights.
