Yoga can be helpful but provided that there is a credible instructor.

It is always good to see alternative methods of treatment for diseases such as osteoporosis. While many Fosamax lawsuit victims can take note of such methods it does not change the fact that they have been injured by the drugs that were supposed to help them.

Although yoga may have been beneficial to many people, it may not predict the same outcome to others. As always, patients are encouraged to consult their doctors before engaging in any type of physical activity to avoid any injuries. Many experts do promote yoga as a good natural alternative to osteoporosis medications as some bisphosphonates such as Fosamax have been reported to cause adverse reactions. Visit for relevant information regarding Fosamax and related side effects.

Low impact exercises, such as yoga, stimulate bone growth for building strong bones. Standing poses can build strength in your hips, an area commonly affected by osteoporosis. Light back-bending back extension poses decompress the vertebrae and build spinal strength. There are, however, some poses that are best avoided if you have osteoporosis. Before starting a yoga program, discuss risks and contraindications with your doctor. Other than yoga exercise as treatment for osteoporosis, Fosamax, belong to a class of drug called bisphosphonates, is widely used by osteoporotic patients. However, this type of drugs has been reported to cause adverse side-effects on its user, especially postmenopausal women. You may refer at for more information.
