Bone variables after a water aerobics program in postmenopausal women undergoing pharmacological treatment

Abstract

To determine the effects of water aerobics on bone mineral density (BMD) and quality of life (QoL) in postmenopausal women undergoing pharmacological treatment. Included in the study were 84 women volunteers who were separated into two groups: water aerobics (43 women, age 55.4 ± 6.4 years) and a control group (41 women, age 54.3 ± 4.5 years).
