It is widely recognized that the risk of fractures is closely related to the typical decline in bone mass during the aging process in both women and men. Exercise has been reported as one of the best non-pharmacological ways to improve bone mass throughout life.
Multi-component exercise programs of strength, aerobic, high impact and/ or weight-bearing training, as well as whole-body vibration (WBV) alone or in combination with exercise, may help to increase or at least prevent decline in bone mass with aging, especially in postmenopausal women.
