Me and my body Luzia Alves
Bone is a living tissue, in constant remodeling and adaptation to mechanical stress. The osteocyte, a bone cell, is the primary mechanic-receptor and plays a key role in the adjustment and repair of micro trauma of the bones.
It is the mechanical stimulation of bone which causes it to improve its structure, and doing physical activity with impact is essential for that. This type of activity exercised in childhood and adolescence, prevents future weak and demineralized bones with fracture risk. The gymnastics, the races and sports with jumps are highly recommended in these age groups.
