Abstract

The spinal column plays a vital biomechanical role in the human body by providing structural support and facilitating motion. As degenerative changes occur in the spine, however, chronic pain can result which frequently forces patient to seek surgical treatment. Such treatments seek to address that pain, frequently by addressing both spinal motion and structural integrity.
