El tratamiento y control de la osteoporosis involucra cambios en el estilo de vida y medicamentos. Aunque la osteoporosis es altamente capaz de prevenirse, no se puede curar. La pérdida ósea no se puede reemplazar. En lugar de eso, el tratamiento se enfoca en reducir la frecuencia de fracturas y desacelerar la pérdida ósea.

El tratamiento involucra lo siguiente:

Cambios en el estilo de vida
Medicamentos
Cirugía
Terapias Alternativas y Complementarias
