Study Finds Annulus Fibrosus GAG Content Alters the Mechanics of Disc Torsion

Study Finds Annulus Fibrosus GAG Content Alters the Mechanics of Disc Torsion

A recent study evaluated the role of facet joints in torsion using four different compressive preload conditions in healthy and degenerated lumbar discs—with, and without facet joints. The study also sought to develop a quantitative relationship between structure and function in tissue and torsion mechanics. The study found that annulus fibrosis GAG content substantially affects […]
