STUDY DESIGN An in vitro flexibility study of the human thoracolumbar spine under compressive preload. OBJECTIVE To attain kinematics descriptive of the thoracolumbar spine in vitro by applying a pure bending moment under a range of physiologic compressive preloads. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Many studies on the mechanical behavior of the spine under… CONTINUE READING
