Abstract

Both cross-sectional and prospective intervention studies indicate that weightbearing exercise increases bone mineral density. But, at present, few completed studies define for clinical use a specific exercise program that will prevent osteoporosis. Now that equipment is available to measure bone mineral in the entire skeleton, studies will be able to correlate exercise regimens with specific skeletal bone mass changes. In the near future, data should emerge that will guide a physician to prescribe not only estrogen, calcium, and vitamins, but also appropriate exercise training programs that will minimize the rate of development of osteoporosis with age. For now, run or walk briskly several hours a week. Exercise in comfort, but not in pain.
