    Do you stand at all? Do you use FES? Medications for osteoporosis in those without SCI have not been found to be successful in prevention or treatment of osteoporosis in SCI, although there is some indication that the medications combined with leg FES can be helpful, as can the drugs plus standing on a special vibrating plate. It is unusual that you have osteoporosis in your spine, as that area is usually spared in SCI.

    Unfortunately fractures are fairly common in people with SCI. Treatment should NOT include the use of rigid casts as these can cause pressure ulcers. How is your fracture being treated.

    I consult an endocrinologist for osteoporosis.

    All the best,
