Identifying mechanisms by which degeneration alters intervertebral disc material properties and biomechanical behavior is important for clarifying back pain risk factors as well as for evaluating the efficacy of novel interventions. Our goal was to quantify and characterize degeneration-dependent changes in the disc's response to compression using a previously established murine model of disc degeneration. We performed compressive creep tests on normal and degenerated murine intervertebral… CONTINUE READING
