Abstract

Soccer is an effective load activity to increase bone mineral content. It remains unknown if this activity induces strength alterations in knee and trunk concomitant with bone in female players. The aim of this study was to assess the possible correlation between knee and trunk muscle strength and bone values in female junior soccer players.
