Abstract

Background. Physical activity is often considered a very useful way of preventing osteoporosis. Anyway, in some particular circumstances, when high agonism is requested, the effects on bone density could be negative. Methods. In this study, based on observations of 13 young volley players at the Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Division of the Orthopaedic Institute G. Pini (Milan), we determined the bone density and the bone mineral content by an X-ray double energy computerised bone densimeter. The results obtained have been compared with a control group consisting of 18 women not playing any sport. Results. A real positive effect on bone metabolism from physical activity in absence of endocrinology diseases has been observed.
