  • PurposeLittle is known about the coupled motions of the spine during functional dynamic motion of the body. This study investigated the in vivo characteristic motion patterns of the human lumbar spine during a dynamic axial rotation of the body. Specifically, the contribution of each motion segment to the lumbar axial rotation and the coupled bending of the vertebrae during the dynamic axial rotation of the body were analyzed.MethodsEight asymptomatic subjects (M/F, 7/1; age, 40–60 years) were… CONTINUE READING
