Exposure to heavy physical occupational activities during working life and bone mineral density at the hip at retirement age

Abstract:

Background: People in sedentary occupations are at increased risk of hip fracture. Hip fracture is significantly associated with low bone mineral density (BMD) measured at the hip. Physical activity is important in the development and maintenance of BMD, but the effects of occupational physical activity on bone health are unclear. We investigated the influence of lifetime physical activity on BMD at the hip. Methods: This was a cross-sectional epidemiological study of the associations between...
