Few studies have examined the effects of leisure physical activity (PA) participation on bone mass and geometry in postmenopausal women using peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT). The purpose of this study was to determine associations between leisure PA participation and bone mass and geometry at the radius and tibia in a Canadian cohort of healthy postmenopausal women (n=234, mean age 62 years). Leisure PA participation was assessed using the Minnesota Leisure Time Physical… CONTINUE READING
