Physical exercise is an accessible form of prevention and treatment of the loss of bone mass, has no side effects, its cost is low, and also provides additional benefits in this field on postural stability and the prevention of falls. Numerous Randomized Clinical Trials (RCTs) carried out in humans suggest that the exercise of force may improve Bone Mineral Density (BMD) in the critical sites of ccurrence of fractures related to the OP. A study with athletes from 70 to 81 years showed that exercise with
load, regardless of the type (power, endurance or speed), led to a higher bone mineral density (BMD) than observed in controls. Furthermore exercises that produce dynamic muscular forces of short duration and high frequency over the bone originate greater density. This fact and the factor site also show to see how tennis players from 70 to 84 years have between 4 and 33 percent more than in the dominant arm bone mass compared to the contralateral.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
