Spinal cord injury (SCI) results in paralysis and marked loss of skeletal muscle and bone below the level of injury. Modest muscle activity prevents atrophy, whereas much larger—and as yet poorly defined—bone loading seems necessary to prevent bone loss. Once established, bone loss may be irreversible. SCI is associated with reductions in growth hormone, IGF‐1, and testosterone, deficiencies likely to exacerbate further loss of muscle and bone. Reduced muscle mass and inactivity are assumed to… Expand
Impact of muscle atrophy on bone metabolism and bone strength: implications for muscle-bone crosstalk with aging and disuse
TLDR
Findings suggest that therapies targeting muscle in the setting of disuse atrophy may potentially attenuate bone loss, primarily by reducing bone resorption. Expand
Osteoporosis in Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury
TLDR
Evidence from a study performed in monozygotic twins discordant for SCI indicates that sublesional bone loss in the twin with SCI increases for several decades, strongly suggesting that the heightened net bone loss after SCI may persist for an extended period of time. Expand
Neurogenic Obesity and Skeletal Pathology in Spinal Cord Injury.
TLDR
The possible interactions of obesity and bone are considered, including emerging evidence suggesting the possible influence of metabolic, autonomic, and endocrine function on bone health in SCI. Expand
Anabolic steroids reduce spinal cord injury-related bone loss in rats associated with increased Wnt signaling
TLDR
It is demonstrated that nandrolone reduces bone loss after SCI, and a potential mechanism is suggested by the findings wherein n androlone modulates genes for differentiation and activity of osteoclasts and osteoblasts, at least in part, through the activation of Wnt signaling. Expand
Narrative RevieweCME Osteoporosis in Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury
TLDR
Evidence from a study performed in monozygotic twins discordant for SCI indicates that sublesional bone loss in the twin with SCI increases for several decades, strongly suggesting that the heightened net bone loss after SCI may persist for an extended period of time. Expand
Electrical stimulation of hindlimb skeletal muscle has beneficial effects on sublesional bone in a rat model of spinal cord injury.
TLDR
After neurologically complete paralysis, dynamic muscle resistance exercise by ES reduced muscle atrophy, downregulated genes involved in muscle wasting, and restored mechanical loading to sublesional bone to a degree that allowed for the preservation of bone by inhibition of bone resorption and/or by facilitating bone formation. Expand
Exploring changes in bone mass in individuals with a chronic spinal cord injury
TLDR
It is suggested that individuals with chronic SCI may have reached a plateau in bone loss with respect to trabecular bone, but cortical bone loss can continue well into the chronic stages. Expand
Impact on bone and muscle area after spinal cord injury.
TLDR
The relationship between bone and muscle was consistent in able-bodied subjects and it was predictably altered in those with SCI, a clinical disease affecting bone and Muscle. Expand
Does Muscle Atrophy and Fatty Infiltration Plateau or Persist in Chronic Spinal Cord Injury?
TLDR
Progressive atrophy and fatty infiltration of lower extremity muscle may have adverse implications for metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease risk and related mortality after chronic SCI. Expand
Effects of low intensity vibration on bone and muscle in rats with spinal cord injury
TLDR
It is suggested that LIV initiated earlier after SCI and/or continued for a longer duration would increase bone mass, and an ability of LIV to improve selected biomarkers of bone turnover and gene expression and to reduce osteoclastogenesis is demonstrated. Expand

Bone Loss and Muscle Atrophy in Spinal Cord Injury: Epidemiology, Fracture Prediction, and Rehabilitation Strategies
TLDR
Several methodological limitations in exercise studies with individuals with SCI to date limit the ability to confirm the utility of exercise for improving skeletal status, and future research should carefully consider the study design, skeletal measurement sites, and the measurement techniques used in order to facilitate sound conclusions.

TLDR
The paralyzed musculoskeletal system retains a remarkable degree of plasticity after spinal cord injury, and physiological levels of electrically induced muscular loading hold promise for preventing post-SCI BMD decline. Expand
Longitudinal study of bone turnover after acute spinal cord injury.
TLDR
A marked increase in bone Resorption and modest changes in bone formation occur after SCI, and possibly increased bone resorption occurs in quadriplegia. Expand

TLDR
Future studies should longitudinally examine changes in muscles from early SCI until steady state is reached in order to determine optimal training protocols for maintaining skeletal muscle after paralysis. Expand

TLDR
The studies in spinal cord-injured subjects revealed a pattern of osteoporosis similar to age and parathyroid dysfunction-related osteoporeosis, and a correlation was detected between indexes of bone metabolism and bone mineral density measurements. Expand

Compressive loads of ∼1 to 2 times body weight, induced by muscle contractions, partially prevent the loss of BMD after SCI. Expand

Because bone resorption after SCI is very high, intravenous bisphosphonates and denosumab should be considered for the treatment of osteoporosis afterSCI. Expand
Differential skeletal muscle gene expression after upper or lower motor neuron transection

There were significant time-dependent differences in muscle atrophy and MAFbx, MuRF1, and IGF-1 expression following SCI or denervation which may result from distinct temporal patterns of spontaneous muscle contractile activity due to injury to upper versus lower motor neurons. Expand

The theory that skeletal muscle can regulate bone maintenance and could offer potentially novel and efficient therapeutic options for attenuating muscle and bone atrophy during aging, illness and spaceflight is supported. Expand

The evolution of various biochemical markers of bone and connective tissue metabolism after onset of paralysis is described and the use of those markers in patients with spinal cord injury is critically reviewed. Expand
