Relationship between bone mineral density of the proximal femur and lumbar spine and quadriceps and hamstrings torque in healthy Japanese subjects

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the corelations between the muscle torque of the leg extensors (quadriceps femoris) and leg flexors (Hamstrings) and the bone mineral density (BMD) of the proximal femur and lumbar spine. To investigate the decline in BMD of proximal femur and lumbar spine, we examined the relative importance of muscle torque, age… (More)
