BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Osteoporosis, a common disease in postmenopausal women and the elderly, is associated with decreases in bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures. As weight-bearing activity such as walking has the potential to maintain or increase BMD, I sought in this meta-analysis to mathematically consolidate research on the effects of walking interventions on BMD. METHODS A literature search for studies examining the effect of walking on BMD in postmenopausal women and men and women… CONTINUE READING
