In brief: Tincture of time

Good bone health requires both calcium and vitamin d supplementation, and i would start with 1200 mg of calcium per day.
Calcium citrate is somewhat better absorbed, but more expensive than calcium carbonate. Vitamin d 600 units daily as well. There are experimental studies with using electrical fields to promote bone healing, and you could talk with your local orthopedist.
