Abstract

SILVEIRA, Geraldo G. Gomes da. Climacteric women. Rev Bras Med Esporte [online]. 1997, vol.3, n.4, pp. 113-116. ISSN 1517-8692.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-86921997000400005.

The author reviews many aspects that involve the clinical approach of climacteric women. Emphasis is placed on exercise practice and on the fact that inconsistent results in the literature regarding physical activity and climacteric syndrome may result from inadequate assessment measurements.

Keywords : Climacterium; Menopause; Osteoporosis; Exercise.
