Background We assessed the impact of a 19-week exercise program on bone health in chronic stroke.
Results Those who underwent the program reported significantly more gain in tibial trabecular bone content and cortical bone thickness on the affected side.
Conclusion Regular exercise is thus beneficial for enhancing bone health in this population.
