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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
