STUDY DESIGN Controlled radiological study. OBJECTIVE Ascertain if a difference exists in the mechanical effects on the cord between the unilateral and bilateral straight leg raise (SLR) and to verify whether the effect on the spinal cord may be cumulative between the two. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA To the authors' knowledge these are the first data on noninvasive, in vivo, normative measurement of spinal cord displacement with bilateral SLR test. METHODS Sixteen asymptomatic volunteers… CONTINUE READING
