Influence of muscle strength, physical activity and weight on bone mass in a population-based sample of 1004 elderly women


High physical activity level has been associated with high bone mass and low fracture risk and is therefore recommended to reduce fractures in old age. The aim of this study was to estimate the effect of potentially modifiable variables, such as physical activity, muscle strength, muscle mass and weight, on bone mass in elderly women. The influence of… (More)
