Association between physical activity and risk of fracture
Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, 07/01/2013Qu X et al.

There was a statistically significant inverse association between physical activity and total fracture risk, especially for hip and wrist fractures. Additional subject–level meta–analyses are required for a more reliable assessment of subgroups and types of physical activity.
