A majority of back pain, a costly condition and leading cause of disability, is mechanical in origin involving the intervertebral disc, facet joints, or ligamentum flavum. Mechanical loading may be beneficial or detrimental to spinal tissues depending on loading mode, magnitude, frequency, and duration. Ex vivo mechanobiology systems have been used to explore how axial loading parameters influence intervertebral disc biology, but flexion/extension (F/E) and combined rotations, loading modes… CONTINUE READING
