Investigator analytic repeatability of two new intervertebral motion biomarkers for chronic, nonspecific low back pain in a cohort of healthy controls
(Chiropractic and Manual Therapies, 2020)
Background: Understanding the mechanisms underlying chronic, nonspecific low back pain (CNSLBP) is essential to advance personalized care and identify the most appropriate intervention. Recently, two intervertebral motion ...
Novel assessment of the variation in cervical inter-vertebral motor control in a healthy pain-free population
(Scientific Reports, 2021)
Spinal control at intervertebral levels is dependent on interactions between the active, passive and neural control elements. However, this has never been quantifiable, and has therefore been outside the reach of clinical ...
Dynamic interactions between lumbar intervertebral motion segments during forward bending and return
(Journal of Biomechanics, 2020)
Continuous dynamic multi-segmental studies of lumbar motion have added depth to our understanding of the biomechanics of back pain, but few have attempted to continuously measure the proportions of motion accepted by ...
An in-vivo study exploring correlations between early-to-moderate disc degeneration and flexion mobility in the lumbar spine
(European Spine Journal, 2020)
Purpose: Early disc degeneration (DD) has been thought to be associated with loss of spine stability. However, before this can be understood in relation to back pain, it is necessary to know the relationship between DD and ...
Re-stabilization of an unstable lumbosacral segment in a patient with chronic back pain: A case report
(EC Orthopaedics, 2021)
Background: Spinal instability is poorly understood. This case report describes the re-stabilization of an unstable vertebral motion segment in a patient with chronic low back pain. Case Presentation: A 50-year-old ...
Passive intervetebral motion characteristics in chronic mid to low back pain: A multivariate analysis
(Medical Engineering and Physics, 2020)
Purpose: Studies comparing back pain patients and controls on continuous intervertebral kinematics have shown differences using univariate parameters. Hitherto, multivariate approaches have not been applied to this high ...
