ABSTRACT
Purpose of this current study was to investigate the effect of low intensity pulsed ultrasound on bone mineral density (BMD) of lumbar vertebrae in osteoporotic postmenopausal women. Thirty postmenopausal women suffer from lumbar vertebrae osteoporosis were selected from Umm El Masryeen General Hospital received ultrasound therapy three time / week for six weeks. DXA was used for assessment of BMD before and after treatment. The results of the study demonstrate significant increase in lumbar BMD. It was concluded that low intensity pulsed ultrasound is effective modalities in increasing bone mineral density (BMD) of lumbar vertebrae in osteoporotic postmenopausal women.
