FES-rowing attenuates bone loss following spinal cord injury as assessed by HR-pQCT

Abstract

Neurologically motor complete spinal cord injury (SCI) presents a unique model of bone loss whereby specific regional sites are exposed to a complete loss of voluntary muscle-induced skeletal loading against gravity. This results in a high rate of bone loss, especially in the lower limbs where trabecular bone mass decreases by ~50–60% and cortical bone mass… (More)
