  1. 1. The role of physical activity on bone density and bone geometry in men

    Author : Martin Nilsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bone mineral density; bone geometry; trabecular microarchitecture; physical activity; men;

    Abstract : THE ROLE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY ON BONE DENSITY AND BONE GEOMETRY IN MEN Introduction: Several studies indicate that peak bone mass, reached during the third decade in life, is an important determinant of osteoporosis later in life. Physical activity with dynamic loading of the bone is an important determinant of peak bone mass. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exercise in Youth and Long-Term Effects on Bone and Joints

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Tveit; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Osteoporos (benskörhet) är ett tillstånd som definieras av låg benmassa och ett tillstånd som ökar med stigande ålder. Sjukdomen i sig är symptomfri men ökar risken för frakturer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Changes in bone mass and skeletal structure in the postmenopausal period

    University dissertation from Annelie Norrby, Department of Orthopaedics, Malmö University Hospital, 20502 Malmö, Sweden

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Benskörhet (osteoporos) är en sjukdom som karaktäriseras av minskad mängd benmassa och försämrad benkvalitet. Benskörhet leder till en ökad risk för frakturer. Förekomsten av benskörhet har fördubblats under de senaste decennierna. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bone density, bone geometry and bone development in young men - the importance of pubertal timing and fracture history

    University dissertation from Annelie Norrby, Department of Orthopaedics, Malmö University Hospital, 20502 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Anna Darelid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; peak bone mass; bone mineral density; bone development; fracture; young adulthood; men;

    Abstract : Background and objective: Peak bone mass, the maximal bone mass attained in young adulthood, is an important factor of the lifetime risk of developing osteoporosis. The aim of this thesis was to study the development of bone mineral density (BMD) and bone geometry around the time of peak bone mass in men, and also to investigate the association between pubertal timing, fracture history, bone turnover markers and BMD and bone geometry in young men.

  5. 5. Bone mass in the young athlete

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Ulrika Pettersson; Umeå universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bone mass; bone area; physical activity; muscle strength; body constitution; amenorrhea; puberty; adolescents; young aduts;

    Abstract : Bone mass and bone size accumulate during childhood and adolescence and peak in the twenties. The obtained peak bone mass has been suggested to be a major determinant of bone mass even in the very elderly. READ MORE
