> I am currently a research student at Loughborough University and am developing

>
> At the moment I am looking for force data for the muscles acting on the whole
> of the spine.
>
> After a long literature search I have found detailed studies regarding the
> physiologic cross sectional areas, angle of orientation, and points of
> attachment for the lumbar region muscles.
>
> e.g. lumbar erector spinae (Macintosh & Bogduk 1987)
> lumbar multifidus (Macintosh & Bogduk 1986)
> psoas major (Bogduk et al. 1992)
>
> However, I have yet to find sufficient data for the thoracic and cervical
> regions.
>
> I would be grateful if anyone could advise me of any references, or has any
> data regarding these areas which might help me.
