Spinal cord injury (SCI)-induced osteoporosis is reported as one of the most rapid and severe forms of osteoporosis. Electromagnetic stimulation has shown to be effective in aiding bone healing in a variety of orthopedic conditions and provides a base of benefits for osteoporosis therapy. We report the efficacy of extremely low frequency magnetic field (ELF-MF) on SCI-induced bone loss. Our results suggest that chronic (2 h/d ?? 8 wk) exposure to ELF-MF is effective in attenuating SCI-induced osteoporosis.
