Spinal cord injury (SCI) is associated with a marked and rapid sublesional bone loss. So far, reports about the time course of adaptive changes in bone mass and structure in people with chronic and complete SCI are conflicting. Both, a continuous decline of bone parameters throughout the chronic phase of immobilisation as well as stabilisation of bone status on a low level have been documented. In our recently published cross-sectional study we suggested that subjects with a complete SCI reach… CONTINUE READING
