Osteoporosis - Other Treatment

Physical therapy

Your doctor may recommend physical therapy. Your physical therapist may teach you how to safely do weight-bearing exercises.

Soy products

Soy products have been tried to help reduce the chance of broken bones due to osteoporosis, but there is not strong evidence that these products help. But soy is a good source of nondairy protein, so many people still choose to include it in their diets. (For example, 1 cup of soy milk contains 7 to 11 grams of soy protein.)

There is not enough evidence to show if other natural products, such as black cohosh, work to reduce bone loss.
