The object of this study is to compare bone mineral content and accumulation in youth gymnast of artistic field to non-athlete. About 15 youth gymnasts has been selected randomly and in the artistic group of has contributed. Also, about 15 have been put in control group of those who did not have any regular gymnastic activity. Bone mineral accumulation and its content have been measured in waist era by Dual Energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measuring. to measure the neutrality of datum distribution among studied groups, we have used of Kolmogorov- Smirnoff test and to test research hypothesis including comparing two study groups, we have used of one-way variance analysis and t-test. Datum has been analyzed by SSPS22 software and in 0.05 meaningful levels. The amount of bone accumulation in waist era among tested two groups does not have meaningful difference (p>0.05). The types of artistic gymnast create outstanding effects on bone compound in the youth. Perhaps the cause of increasing accumulation and bone content is mechanical load effect on bones and special characteristic of gymnastic.
