Disc height loss under constant compression – time-dependent response.

Disc height loss under constant compression – time-dependent response.

The intervertebral disc is home to visceoelastic material than deforms under constant load. Its role is to keep vertebrae separated to avoid the bones to approximate one another. Many researchers have seen how the disc gets squashed more under a constant and sustained load. 1 2 3 4 5 Sustained load, as seen in sitting patients […]
