View Full Version : trunk flexion/extension and posture

10-12-1999, 08:16 PM
Dear suscribers,

I'm looking for informations about influence of posture (ie : standing,
sitting or semistanding) on a trunk flexion/extension movement. I'm
looking for any information on modifications induced by posture on
intradiscal pressure, effect of gravity, muscular forces, and on
biomechanics of the lumbar spine...
I would also be happy to share experience with peoples working in the
rehabilitation field. What arguments are for/against each posture when
dealing with rehabilitation of low back pain ?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
