    R Nikander
    Bone Research Group, UKK Institute for Health Promotion Research, Tampere, Finland
    Scand J Med Sci Sports 18:145-53. 2008
    ..A specific finding was the thick anterior cortex of the femoral neck among the slalom skiers. Apparently, the predominant loading type had modulated the site-specific skeletal response to physical exertion...
  2. ncbi request reprint Loading modalities and bone structures at nonweight-bearing upper extremity and weight-bearing lower extremity: a pQCT study of adult female athletes
    Riku Nikander
    Bone Research Group, UKK Institute for Health Promotion Research, Tampere, Finland
    Bone 39:886-94. 2006
    ..Thus, different loading history and other features of loading seemed to govern the skeletal adaptation at the upper and lower extremity...

    Riku Nikander
    Bone Research Group, UKK Institute for Health Promotion Research, Tampere, Finland
    Acta Oncol 46:181-6. 2007
    ..The present exercise regimen turned out to be feasible and effective among breast cancer patients in terms of physical performance. Large controlled trials are necessary to confirm these findings...

    Riku Nikander
    Department of Medicine, The University of Melbourne, Western Hospital, Australia
    BMC Med 8:47. 2010
    ..The primary purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the effects of long-term supervised exercise (> or =6 months) on estimates of lower-extremity bone strength from childhood to older age...
  6. doi request reprint Targeted exercises against hip fragility
    R Nikander
    Bone Research Group, UKK Institute for Health Promotion Research, 33501 Tampere, Finland
    Osteoporos Int 20:1321-8. 2009
    ..Since odd-impact exercises are mechanically less demanding to the body, this type of exercise can provide a reasonable basis for devising feasible, targeted bone training against hip fragility...
  7. ncbi request reprint Femoral neck structure in adult female athletes subjected to different loading modalities
    Riku Nikander
    Bone Research Group, UKK Institute for Health Promotion Research, Tampere, Finland
    J Bone Miner Res 20:520-8. 2005
    ..Loading modality is a strong external determinant of structure and concomitant strength of the femoral neck. Particularly effective seem to be loadings, which arise from high impacts or impacts from atypical loading directions...
