Osteoporosis has been called a pediatric disease with geriatric consequences. One strategy to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and low peak bone mass later in life is to optimize peak bone mass and strength. Children and youth between the ages of 9 and 18 years are in their key bone building years. However, it is difficult to screen for bone health in children and adults due to the necessity of specialized equipment not available to most coaches, teachers and clinicians. Muscle function tests may provide a simple, objective and reliable measure to predict and monitor bone strength across the lifespan. Join ACSM Fellow Vanessa R Yingling, Ph.D., from California State University East Bay as she shares insights on this important topics.
