The effect of posture on spinal compressive strength was examined in a series of three experiments on cadaveric material. Lumbar 'motion segments', consisting of two vertebrae and the intervening disc and ligaments, were compressed while positioned in various angles of flexion and extension. In the first experiment load sharing between the disc, the apophyseal joint surfaces, and the intervertebral ligaments was inferred from measurements of intradiscal pressure (IDP). Results showed that… CONTINUE READING
