Oestoporosis

A dexa scan was conducted today for Mrs. Geeta Mandal (my mother) and the T- for lumbar spine is -2.5 and Neck is -2.3. After this, we consulted with a dietician who told this was oestoporosis. Do I need to further consult with an orthopedic specialist? And what medicines are recommended in this condition?
