Multiple studies confirm that aerobic, low weight and resistance exercises can maintain or increase bone density (OD) in postmenopausal women. Many researchers have evaluated what types of exercise are more effective in improve the DO and other measurements of bone quality, however the results vary. A year of regular exercise does increase bone density and moment of inertia of the proximal tibia in normal women after menopause.Walks, gymnastic training, stepping, jumping, endurance, and strength exercises, resulting in a significant increase in bone density of L2-L4 in osteopenic postmenopausal women. and strength exercises specifically improve and distal radius bone densities up esas. The combined exercise with other drug treatments hrmonal replacement therapy (HRT) has shown to increase bone density even more than with HRT alone. Additional benefits for osteoporotic patients also of bone density inccremento includes improvements in balance, and a reduced risk of falls.
