Is not bone, but to strengthen bone health, you need vitamin d, calcium, exercise and no smoking.

Dts spinal decompression is an unproved therapy. If one has bone pain with such a therapy reconsider if it is appropriate. Bone pain in young women can be associated with iron deficiency and low 25 oh vitamin d3. Muscle spasm can cause pain and can be relieved sometimes with inexpensive topical magesnium oil.

Bones are heavily dependent on vitamin d and calcium. You should have ample supply of both. Often vitamin d levels are decreased and supplemental vitamin d on top of what you get in your diet is recommended. Avoiding alcohol use and smoking are just as important.
