  Purpose

Bone loss is a common secondary complication of spinal cord injury (SCI), and treatments used to reverse this condition have equivocal effectiveness. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of intense multi-modal training on bone health, body fat, and quality of life in persons with SCI. Participants will complete 6 months of training during which various measures will be obtained at 0, 3, and 6 months. Control subjects are also being recruited to complete testing but not participate in training.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Bone mineral density [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bone mineral density of the total body, knee, hip, and spine will be assessed via dual energy x-ray absorptiometry.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Body fat [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Total-body and regional depots of fat and fat-free mass will also be assessed in this study.
