Exercise Reduces Fracture in Men

Research published in PLoS Medicine shows that men can help avoid fractures if they participate in sport or other vigorous activity. Serious fractures are common among older people and can have devastating consequences, particularly if a hip is broken. It is already recommended that women should take exercise to reduce the thinning of their bones.

The thinning of the bones with age is known as osteoporosis. Women are at particular risk of osteoporotic fractures as the thinning of their bones increases markedly after the menopause. But it is wrong to think of osteoporosis as a womans disease. Osteoporotic fractures are a risk for men too.

Karl Michaelsson and colleagues at University Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden, report research in which over 2000 men were asked, during 1970 to 1973, about the amount of physical activity they took outside working hours. They were asked the same questions again when they were aged 60, 70, 77, and 82. A record was also kept of the number of fractures the men had suffered during the 35 years of the study.

On the basis of the answers to the questions on physical activity at the start of the study, the researchers divided the men into three categories: those whose lifestyle was considered to be sedentary, those whose leisure activities included some walking and cycling, and those who participated in sports for at least 3 hours a week. These were referred to as the low, medium, and high-activity groups.

Over the 35 years, 428 men had at least one fracture and 134 broke a hip, but there were big differences between the groups20% of the low-activity men had fractures, compared with 13% of those with medium activity and only 8% of those in the high-activity group. In particular, the chance of having a hip fracture was reduced by increased activity.

The researchers conclude that taking exercise reduces the risk of an osteoporotic fracture in men. Participating in sports seems to be pa
