Abstract

Summary The primary objective is the description of bone sional jockey license between 2013 and 2015. Areal BMD at the mineral density (BMD) and body composition in newly li- spine, femoral neck (FN), total hip and body composition were censed jockeys. One in three male, flat jockeys has a very assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan. We low bone mineral density. Further research is needed to assess examined differences between BMD and body composition by the short-term risk of fractures and long-term health implica- gender and race type (flat or jump). Volumetric bone mineral tions of these findings. apparent density (BMAD) of the spine and FN was also calcu- Introduction Describe bone mineral density (BMD) and body lated to account for group differences in bone size. composition in entry-level male and female, flat and jump Results Seventy-nine male flat jockeys (age 18.5 ± 1.9, BMI jockeys in Great Britain. 19.0 ± 1.4), 69 male jump (age 20.7 ± 2.0, BMI 20.6 ± 1.3) and 37 female flat jockeys (age 19.3 ± 2.0, BMI 20.8 ± 1.7) took part in this study.
