Loading modality is a strong external determinant of structure and concomitant strength of the femoral neck. Particularly effective seem to be loadings, which arise from high impacts or impacts from… Expand
Effect of supervised and home exercise training on bone mineral density among breast cancer patients. A 12-month randomised controlled trial
SummaryThe ability of combined step aerobic- and circuit-training to prevent bone loss after breast cancer treatments was related to skeletal site and patients’ menopausal status. Among premenopausal… Expand
