STUDY DESIGN This is a retrospective analysis of lumbar segmental motion using Kinetic magnetic resonance imaging(KMRI). OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to investigate lumbar segmental motion in functional (ie, standing weight-bearing flexion and extension) positions and examine the effects of lumbar disk degeneration on lumbar segmental motion. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Various biomechanical studies using cadaveric specimens have demonstrated the effects of disk degeneration on lumbar… CONTINUE READING
