The Biomechanics of Back Pain

The Biomechanics of Back Pain

Back pain is a common condition that affects a large percentage of the population, creating a significant impact on individual health and employment, as well as on the workload of manual therapy practitioners and orthopedic surgeons. This practical text, written by four key researchers in the field, offers an effective approach to the management and treatment of back pain based on applications of biomechanics. By linking the clinical anatomy of the spine to biomechanics principles, it provides a bridge between anatomy and practical applications. This highly illustrated, up-to-date book is essential reading for anyone involved in the care and treatment of patients with back pain, as well as for those studying its causes and methods of prevention.
Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

"Orthopedic Biomechanics" sheds light on an important and interesting discipline at the interface between medical and natural sciences. Understanding the effects of mechanical influences on the human body is the first step toward developing innovative treatment and rehabilitation concepts for orthopedic disorders. This book provides valuable information on the forces acting on muscles, tendons, and bones. Beginning with the step-by-step fundamentals of physics and mechanics, it goes on to cover the function and loading of joints, movement in two- and three-dimensions, and the properties of biological tissues. This book explains the practical importance of biomechanics, including special chapters addressing the mechanical causes of disk prolapse, load on the spine in sitting and standing positions, and the correlation between mechanical loading and bone density.
Clinical Biomechanics of the Spine

Clinical Biomechanics of the Spine

Combining orthopedic surgery with biomechanical engineering, this reference and teaching text reviews and analyzes the clinical and scientific data on the mechanics of the human spine. This edition adds new material on vibration (i.e. road driving) and its effect on the spine; anatomy and kinematics of the occipital cervical junction; clinical biomechanics of kyphosis deformity; scoliosis and the limited role of bracing; spinal trauma; and the role of athletics in cervical spine injuries.
Clinical Biomechanics of Spinal Manipulation

Clinical Biomechanics of Spinal Manipulation

This clinically oriented text focuses on biomechanics as it relates to spinal manipulative treatment, emphasizing the applications to daily practice. Chapters cover basic mechanics, functional anatomy, mechanics of spinal manipulation, and the effects of spinal manipulation. A chapter of case studies illustrates the application of biomechanics to spinal manipulation.
Movement, Stability and Low Back Pain: The Essential Role of the Pelvis

Movement, Stability and Low Back Pain: The Essential Role of the Pelvis

The human pelvis, in particular movement at the pelvic joints, has recently become the focus of a number of major research programmes. The outcomes of this research are giving rise to a new set of questions with important clinical implications. These questions include: Is the consideration of the lumbar spine and pelvis as separate entities an obstacle to the effective treatment of back pain? What are the similarities between lumbopelvic pain and peripartum pain? Does the latest anatomical and biomechanical research provide the missing links? How is the stability of the pelvis maintained? What effect does lumbar spine surgery have on pelvic stability? What is the relevance of the latest kinematic findings to the prevention and treatment of low back pain? Movement, Stability and Low Back Pain brings together the latest findings which help to provide the answers to these questions. Back pain is one of the most common clinical problems in modern society. Its safe and effective management concerns many professional groups from gynaecologists and midwives to physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and orthopaedic surgeons.
Pelvic Locomotor Dysfunction: A Clinical Approach

Pelvic Locomotor Dysfunction: A Clinical Approach

This practical chiropractic reference discusses a clinical approach to common locomotor disturbances of the pelvic joints, specifically, the sacroiliac, hip, and pubic symphysis joints. Soft tissue and muscular dysfunction are also covered. The book focuses on the more common disorders that most practitioners using manual methods see on a daily basis. Opening chapters review the anatomy and function of the sacroiliac joints. Two chapters address making a clinical assessment, history taking and general considerations. A heavily illustrated examination chapter, plus treatment chapters covering mobilization and manipulation, provide a wealth of practical clinical applications. The soft tissue treatment techniques discussed include myofascial trigger points and length—strength restoration of muscles. A chapter discusses stretching techniques and exercises that can be taught to patients to do at home. An Instructor's manual is available.
Basic Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System

Basic Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System

This textbook introduces biomechanical principles for use in the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction.
