Does anyone know if degeneration can be turned around with any kind of therapy instead of surgery or maybe taking more calcium. My dr took me off of harmone therapy and started evista for bones.

    If your talking about disc degeneration. A disc is not a bone. So calcium and other supplements will not help. But if you saw a specialist maybe they might recommend therapy and other conservative treatments.
    Good luck, Jim

  • :) lifting weights is a good way to strengthen bones. :? using just a 5 pound weight can make a big difference. as a woman going through menopause and over 50 it is more important than ever to keep my bones strong. of course calcium supplements are a no brainer and can be taken every day as well. good luck and keep strong!
