Anti-directional cervical intervertebral motion: could it have gone any other way?
(Journal of Spine Surgery, 2018)
Does cervical lordosis change after spinal manipulation for non-specific neck pain? A prospective cohort study
(Chiropractic and Manual Therapies, 2015)
Background: The association between cervical lordosis (sagittal alignment) and neck pain is controversial. Further, it is unclear whether spinal manipulative therapy can change cervical lordosis. This study aimed to determine ...
Estimation of in vivo inter-vertebral loading during motion using fluoroscopic and magnetic resonance image informed finite element models
(Journal of Biomechanics, 2018)
Finite element (FE) models driven by medical image data can be used to estimate subject-specific spinal biomechanics. This study aimed to combine magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and quantitative fluoroscopy (QF) in ...
Accuracy and repeatability of quantitative fluoroscopy for the measurement of sagittal plane translation and finite centre of rotation in the lumbar spine
(Medical Engineering and Physics, 2016)
Quantitative fluoroscopy (QF) was developed to measure intervertebral mechanics in vivo and has been found to have high repeatability and accuracy for the measurement of intervertebral rotations. However, sagittal plane ...
Relationships between muscle electrical activity and the control of inter-vertebral motion during a forward bending task
(Journal of Electro - myography and Kinesiology, 2018)
Muscle strengthening exercises are commonly used in primary care for the treatment of chronic, non-specific low back pain (CNSLBP) as it has been theorised that increased muscle activity contributes to the stabilisation ...
Does inter-vertebral range of motion increase after spinal manipulation? A prospective cohort study
(Chiropractic and Manual Therapies, 2014)
Background: Spinal manipulation for nonspecific neck pain is thought to work in part by improving inter-vertebral range of motion (IV-RoM), but it is difficult to measure this or determine whether it is related to clinical ...
Uneven intervertebral motion sharing is related to disc degeneration and is greater in patients with chronic, non-specific low back pain: an in vivo, cross-sectional cohort comparison of intervertebral dynamics using quantitative fluoroscopy
(European Spine Journal, 2018)
Purpose: Evidence of intervertebral mechanical markers in chronic, non-specific low back pain (CNSLBP) is lacking. This research used dynamic fluoroscopic studies to compare intervertebral angular motion sharing inequality ...
Intrasubject repeatability of in vivo intervertebral motion parameters using quantitative fluoroscopy
(European Spine Journal, 2019)
Purpose: In vivo quantification of intervertebral motion through imaging has progressed to a point where biomarkers for low back pain are emerging. This makes possible deeper study of the condition’s biometrics. However, ...
Aberrant intervertebral motion in patients with treatment-resistant nonspecific low back pain: a retrospective cohort study and control comparison
(European Spine Journal, 2018)
Purpose: Intervertebral kinematic assessments have been used to investigate mechanical causes when back pain is resistant to treatment, and recent studies have identified intervertebral motion markers that discriminate ...
Can biomechanics research lead to more effective treatment of low back pain? A point-counterpoint debate
(Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy, 2019)
Although biomechanics plays a role in the development and perhaps the persistent or recurrent nature of low back pain (LBP), whether biomechanics alone can provide the basis for intervention is debated. Biomechanics, which ...
