STUDY DESIGN Cervical facet capsular strains were determined during bending and at failure in the human cadaver. OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of an axial pretorque on facet capsular strains and estimate the risk for subcatastrophic capsular injury during normal bending motions. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Epidemiologic and clinical studies have identified the facet capsule as a potential site of injury and prerotation as a risk factor for whiplash injury. Unfortunately, biomechanical… CONTINUE READING
