The intention of this paper is to introduce some of the issues surrounding the role of muscles to ensure spine stability for discussion -- it is not intended to provide an exhaustive review and integration of the relevant literature. The collection of works synthesized here point to the notion that stability results from highly coordinated muscle activation(More)
STUDY DESIGN A systematic biomechanical analysis involving an artificial perturbation applied to individual lumbar muscles in order to assess their potential stabilizing role. OBJECTIVES To identify which torso muscles stabilize the spine during different loading conditions and to identify possible mechanisms of function. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA.:(More)
