Objectives: Adolescents with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) have significantly lower bone mineral density (BMD) compared to their non-affected peers. Their difficulty in performing weight bearing movement skills is hypothesised to explain poorer bone characteristics. This feasibility study examined the impact of a 13-week exercise intervention on tibial bone parameters in adolescents with DCD.Methods: Twenty-eight adolescents with DCD particip...
