This study assessed the BMD of the bowling arm compared to the non-bowling arm and the distal forearm BMD of the bowling arm compared to the non-bowling arm of elite collegiate ten-pin bowlers. Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry Unit (DXA) was used to assess the BMD of bilateral arms (whole body scan) and bilateral distal forearms (forearm scan) of 25 (N=13 males, N=12 females) collegiate bowlers(20.72 ± 1.46 yrs). The forearm scans showed significantly greater (p<0.05) BMD in the bowling arm (0.635 ± .05 g·cm⁻²) compared to the non-bowling arm (0.618 ± .06 g·cm⁻²)of both the male and female ten-pin bowlers.
