Vigorous Exercise Strengthens Children's Hip Bones

Researchers have found vigorous physical activity in young children can lead to stronger hip bones.

More than 200 six year olds participated in the study. Physical activity was assessed for seven days, and researchers measured both bone mass and structure.

According to Eurekalert:

“The results showed that there was a relationship between time spent in vigorous activity and strength of the femoral neck [hip bone], both in terms of shape and volumetric mineral density.”
