STUDY DESIGN A biomechanical study was performed to determine the consequences of a simulation of muscle forces on the loads imposed on the functional spinal units. OBJECTIVES No biomechanical study has investigated the effect of incorporation of agonist and antagonist muscle forces on the loading of functional spinal units. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Spinal disorders and low back pain are increasingly becoming a worldwide problem. Traditional conservative therapies are intended to… CONTINUE READING
