Osteoporosis in Men: Insights for the Clinician

    Therapeutic advances in musculoskeletal disease
  • 2011
TLDR
Recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis in men should lead to fewer fractures and probably fewer deaths.
Vibration transmission through the human spine during physical activity
TLDR
The feasibility of employing inertial sensors and a skin correction method to measure vibration transmission through the spine during physical activity and characterize the transmission of vibration in the lumbar and thoracic spines of people with and without osteoporosis during physical activities is evaluated.
Pulsed ultrasound for bone regeneration - outcomes and hurdles in the clinical application: a systematic review.
TLDR
This systematic review addresses the hurdles that the clinical application of LIPUS encounters and raises the question of whether the so-called "acoustic dose" requires a thorough characterisation to reveal the mechanisms of the therapy.
Reliability and Validity of the Revised Osteoporosis Knowledge Test
TLDR
The revised OKT provides sufficient reliability and construct validity and there was evidence of internal consistency with an item separation index of 12.68 and a reliability score of .98.
Vibration stimuli and the differentiation of musculoskeletal progenitor cells: Review of results in vitro and in vivo.
TLDR
The effects of vibration on the cellular responses, in particular for cells within the musculoskeletal system, are reviewed, including both osteogenesis and adipogenesis, as well as the interaction between MSCs and other cell types within bone tissue.
Therapeutic effect of localized vibration on alveolar bone of osteoporotic rats
TLDR
Vibration, in the form of high frequency acceleration (HFA), stimulates alveolar bone formation under physiologic conditions and during healing after dental extractions to suggest that HFA could be a predictable treatment for diminished alveolars bone levels in osteoporosis patients.
Whole body vibration at low-frequency can increase trabecular thickness and width in adult rats
TLDR
The results suggest that WBV at low-frequencies may become a potent modality for the primary prevention of osteoporosis in adults.
The Focal Mechanical Vibration for Balance Improvement in Elderly – A Systematic Review
TLDR
FV can be effective in decreasing the risk of falls and improving the assessment of balance, but more evidence is necessary considering the limits of the studies; however, it does look an important promise during rehabilitative treatment.

Exercise in the Prevention of Osteoporosis-Related Fractures
TLDR
Intense animal and human research activity over the last 20 years has generated a wealth of data that has led to recommendations for exercise prescriptions to both enhance bone strength and minimize risk of falling, but whether those exercise protocols will be shown to effectively reduce actual fracture incidence requires the analysis of longer term data than is currently available.

Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation in Osteoporosis: A Review
TLDR
Current scientific evidence concerning nonpharmacologic approaches that are used in conjunction with pharmacotherapy for prevention and management of osteoporosis is delineated.

[The effect of group exercise on postmenopausal osteoporosis and osteopenia].
TLDR
This pilot study demonstrates the effectiveness of physiotherapist-supervised group exercise programs in decreasing pain and increasing BMD and quality of life of both osteoporotic and osteopenic women.
Epidemiology and outcomes of osteoporotic fractures
Whole-body vibration as potential intervention for people with low bone mineral density and osteoporosis: a review.
TLDR
An overview of WBV is provided including terminology, safety considerations, and a summary of the current literature intended for rehabilitation healthcare providers considering WBV as a potential therapy for individuals with osteoporosis.
New Technologies in Spine: Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty for the Treatment of Painful Osteoporotic Compression Fractures
TLDR
Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty are safe and effective, and have a useful role in the treatment of painful osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures that do not respond to conventional treatments.
Hip protectors and prevention of hip fractures in older persons.
TLDR
In order to increase adherence, it is necessary to educate older persons who are at risk on the dangers of hip fractures and the value of hip protectors as a preventive device.
