See below: Regular exercises that includes weight training is important as is maintaining the proper intake of calcium and vitamin d. You should discuss with your doctor the proper amounts and how to take them in. Depending on the severity of the osteoporosis, medications which boost bone density may be indicated as well. Your doctor can guide you with this.
