Introduction: Menopausal women face many problems including osteoporosis. One of the preventive ways to avoid osteoporosis and its complications is regular activity and participation in sports. So, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of 16 weeks of Pilates exercises on bone mass density in menopausal women.
Methods: Therefore, 30 menopausal women were selected as subjects and randomly divided into two groups of control and exercise. The training group practiced Pilates for 16 weeks. T-score, L1-L4 lumbar region and femoral neck of both groups were measured by Stenosis densitometer (DEXA), before training, after 8 weeks and after 16 weeks of training. A comparative test of repeated measurements with intergroup factors was used for examining data.
Results: Results shows that the interaction between time and group is significant (p< 0.05). Bone density of the lumbar vertebra was reduced after 8 weeks of Pilates workouts, which wasn’t significant. But there was a significant increase after 16 weeks of workout compared to 8 weeks (p<0.05). Also, this density ratio shows a significant increase in interaction with the control group after 16 weeks of workout. Similar results were seen in femoral neck density with lumbar vertebrae.
Conclusion: It seems that doing Pilates workouts by menopausal women, has a significant effect on bone mass density after a long time. Therefore training method of Pilates is an appropriate training method for menopausal women.
