Back Progressive Resistive Exercise Program to Reduce Risk of Vertebral Fractures
TLDR
This method of PRE of the back extensors was effective in decreasing incidence of vertebral fracture and resulted in increased strength of back extensor strength in the exercise group 8 years after the end of this study.
Back extensor training increases muscle strength in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, kyphosis and vertebral fractures
TLDR
A 4-months back extensor training program can improve back strength and seems to maintain height and thoracic expansion in women with at least one vertebral fractures and osteoporosis.
Association between moderate physical activity, spinal motion and back muscle strength in postmenopausal women with and without osteoporosis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that active women had better range of spinal motion than sedentary women, but they did not differ significantly in severity of thoracic kyphosis, BES and BMD.
Long-term outcomes of exercise: follow-up of a randomized trial in older women with osteopenia.
TLDR
Mainly home-based exercises followed by voluntary home training seem to have a long-term effect on balance and gait and may even protect high-risk elderly women from hip fractures.
Wearing an active spinal orthosis improves back extensor strength in women with osteoporotic vertebral fractures
TLDR
The results imply that Spinomed III could be recommended for women with vertebral fractures as a supplement to traditional back strengthening exercises, and demonstrate a clinically relevant improvement in the back extensor strength.
Effect of low-intensity back exercise on quality of life and back extensor strength in patients with osteoporosis: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Low-intensity back-strengthening exercise was effective in improving the quality of life and back extensor strength in patients with osteoporosis.
Effect of twelve-month physical exercise program on patients with osteoporotic vertebral fractures: a randomized, controlled trial
TLDR
This is the first 12 month-randomized clinical trial of exercise in osteoporotic women with a vertebral fracture that demonstrates improvement of three key outcome measures: quality of life, functional mobility, and balance.
Effects of a New Spinal Orthosis on Posture, Trunk Strength, and Quality of Life in Women with Postmenopausal Osteoporosis: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
The use of an orthosis increases trunk muscle strength and thus improves posture in patients with vertebral fractures caused by osteoporosis, and a better quality of life is achieved by pain reduction, decreased limitations of daily living, and improved well-being.
Vertebral compression fractures associated with yoga: a case series.
TLDR
Patients in whom increased torsional and compressive mechanical loading pressures occurring during yoga SFE resulted in de novo VCF are identified, highlighting the need for selectivity in yoga poses in populations at increased fracture risk.
Effect of treatment on back pain and back extensor strength with a spinal orthosis in older women with osteoporosis: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Six months’ treatment by an activating spinal orthosis showed no significant difference in back pain, back extensor strength, or kyphosis index between the three groups, indicating that the spinal Orthosis may become an alternative training method.

Effects of high-intensity strength training on multiple risk factors for osteoporotic fractures. A randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
High-intensity strength training exercises are an effective and feasible means to preserve bone density while improving muscle mass, strength, and balance in postmenopausal women.
Functional impact of unvarying exercise program in women after menopause.
TLDR
The results suggest that an unvarying home-based exercise program may support general agility but does not yield enough force to improve muscle strength and postural stability in healthy, nondisabled, postmenopausal women who start exercising at the age of 60 yr.
Physical activity in postmenopausal women: effect on back muscle strength and bone mineral density of the spine.
TLDR
The data suggest that levels of physical activity and back muscle strength may be contributors to the bone mineral density of vertebral bodies.
Weight-bearing exercise training and lumbar bone mineral content in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
Weight-bearing exercise led to significant increases above baseline in bone mineral content which were maintained with continued training in older, postmenopausal women, and with reduced weight- bearing exercise, bone mass reverted to baseline levels.
Pre‐ and Postmenopausal Women Have Different Bone Mineral Density Responses to the Same High‐Impact Exercise
TLDR
It appears that premenopausal women respond positively to this brief high‐impact exercise but post menopausal women do not, and HRT status did not affect this outcome.
Randomized placebo-controlled trial of brisk walking in the prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis.
TLDR
The promotion of exercise through brisk-walking advice given by nursing staff may have a small, but clinically important, impact on bone mineral density but is associated with an increased risk of falls.

TLDR
The results indicate that ERT seems especially effective in preventing postmenopausal bone loss, whereas recreational gymnastics and folk dancing improve muscular performance and body balance in addition to increased bone mass and bone size in the tibia.
