STUDY DESIGN We conducted intradiscal pressure measurements with one volunteer performing various activities normally found in daily life, sports, and spinal therapy. OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to measure intradiscal pressure to complement earlier data from Nachemson with dynamic and long-term measurements over a broad range of activities. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Loading of the spine still is not well understood. The most important in vivo data are from pioneering intradiscal… CONTINUE READING
