How OI treated?

There are many forms of treatments for the different types of OI. There is no cure for this disease, but the symptoms can be managed. Surgery to treat OI can involve the placement of rods into the bones to strengthen them and prevent them from breaking and deforming. Physical therapy can also be used to strengthen muscles and to teach patients how to prevent breaks. It is most important to practice a healthy lifestyle when one has OI. By eating a healthy diet rich in calcium, one can help improve bone strength. Doctors may also recommend certain forms of exercise to strengthen bones, maintain a healthy weight, and strengthen muscles.
