Lumbar spinal flexion and extension motion was measured radiographically and from the back surface curvature in 42 patients with low-back pain to determine whether the surface measurements provided accurate measurement of the total lumbar spinal motion and its distribution by vertebral level. Also, a biomechanical model of motion of the lumbar spine was used to predict the changes in the back surface as a function of varying amount of flexion and extension at the intervertebral articulations… CONTINUE READING
