Abstract

Increased physical activity and bisphosphonate treatment are both effective in reducing the risk of fracture in postmenopausal women. Physical activity reduces the risk of fracture by improving both bone and skeletal muscle strength. The effects of bisphosphonates have primarily been evaluated on bone. In this study the authors investigated the combined effects of increased physical activity and bisphosphonate treatment on skeletal muscle function using an animal model of postmenopausal osteoporosis.
