Parental characteristic patterns associated with maintaining healthy physical activity behavior during childhood and adolescence

  • Published on May 6, 2016

Background: Parental characteristics that influence child physical activity (PA) behavior often co-occur. An analytic approach that considers these co-occurring patterns can help researchers better understand the overall context of parental influence. The study aims were to: (1) identify diverse patterns of the relationships among parental characteristics, (2) examine the influence of these ...

Everyday Activity Predicts Bone Geometry in Children: The Iowa Bone Development Study

  • Published on 2004

Purpose Bone adapts to changing mechanical loads by altering the structure appropriately. These adaptations should be evident in the bone cross-sectional area (CSA) and section modulus (Z), indices of axial and bending strength, respectively. In this cross-sectional study, we investigated associations between physical activity, CSA, and Z in 467 young children (...
