The motor dysfunction resulting from spinal cord injury (SCI) is precipitated by the neural insult and is exacerbated by other factors that hinder motoneuron survival and muscle recovery, including disuse and low testosterone (T). The success of bodyweight-supported treadmill training (BWSTT) diminishes as the SCI severity worsens. We have developed a novel strategy involving BWSTT with adjuvant T-enanthate (TE) drug treatment that promotes use-dependent neuroplasticity, in-part, by preserving w...
