Go for bone mineral density test called Dexa scan.This will reveal if there is fault in bone density.
Xray of wrist and spine will also reveal bone texture to be able to say anything about osteopenia.There is treatment with calcium , Vitamin D and diet plans rich in calcium (milk and dairy products, Green vegetables,fruits)

You can give him one banana per day and a glass of milk everyday for 15-20 days .It contains calcium in natural form so it is well absorbed by the body.

Moreover you can give him medicine rhustox 30 4 tabs 4 times in a day for 15 days ,it will relieve the pain and stiffness of osteopenia and also help in reducing sensation of numbness.
