Objective: Bone and muscle deficits are observed in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD). High-impact exercise (HIE), such as jumping based exercise, can provide hypertrophic and osteogenic stimulus, however to date there have been no studies of HIE in CD.

Objective: Childhood onset Crohn’s disease (CO-CD) is associated with musculoskeletal deficits. However, there are limited data regarding muscle-bone outcomes in adults with CO-CD. The current study aimed to comprehensively assess the muscle-fat-bone unit in young adults with CO-CD, using novel methods of MRI, in comparison with healthy controls.Methods: Trabecular microarchitecture and cortical geometry of the distal femur were assessed using 3T mi...
