Axially Loaded Magnetic Resonance Imaging Identification of the Factors Associated with Low Back-Related Leg Pain

Goal of the Study? In this primary research article [1. A novel rat tail disc degeneration model induced by static bending and compression] the authors aim to establish an animal model that can be extrapolated to the complex mechanical load of human intervertebral disc during bending and compression loading.  Their hypothesis was that a [...]

How Lifting Weight and Posture Are Linked to Disc Herniation

A study [1. A new dynamic six degrees of freedom disc-loading simulator allows to provoke disc damage and herniation] in the European Spine Journal created a disc-loading simulator to help collect data about disc herniation and injury. It offered some interesting results about how lifting heavy weights and maintaining extreme postures are linked to [...]
