Abstract:
This study compared bone mineral density of the radius, ulna, spine, and femur in healthy adults of varying activity levels. The sample included caucasian males (67) and females (82) ranging from 35 to 85 years. Males who were highly active in weight bearing activity had greater bone mineral density of the radius, ulna, femur neck and Ward's triangle of femur than those who were less active. Females who were highly active in high impact weight bearing activity and nonweight bearing activity had greater bone mineral density at the radius than females who were less active in these activities. Multiple regression revealed that weight bearing activity and age were fairly good predictors of radial bone mineral density in males aged 35-64 years, and high impact weight bearing activity and age were fairly good predictors of radial bone mineral density in females aged 35-49 years.
