Example text

Most of these papers clearly state that this notion is restricted to "nonspecific back pain," noting that specific diagnoses do impair the ability of a worker to perform a demanding job. However, some based their argument on the concept that low back tissue injury heals in 6 to 1 2 weeks, while others base their arguments on a behavioral model of chronic pain that is not totally consistent with the findings of other scientific approaches . A short discussion of the issues and evidence related to physician diagno­ sis, compensation, tissue dama ge, and pain is necessary.

I mproved tissue-based diagnosis, improved provocative/functional diagnosis, and better understanding of the interactions of psychological variables with pathoanatomical variables appear to have promise for helping to improve treatment outcomes. Are Biomechanical Variables and Psychosocial Variables Distinct ? Are biomechanical variables and psychosocial variables distinct, or is there an inter­ play between them that, if understood, would underpin a more evidenced-based intervention program? Most repotts have made a clear separation between psychosocial and biomechani­ cal factors.

Deformations are modeled from the three-dimensional lumbar kinematics measured from the subject, which drive the vertebral kinematics of the model. Passive tissue stresses are calibrated for the differences in flexibility of each subject by normal­ izing the stress-strain curves to the passive range of motion of the subject. Electromag­ netic instrumentation, which monitors the relative l umbar angles in three dimensions, detects the isolated l umbar motion. The remaining moment is then partitioned among the many fascicles of muscle based on their activation profiles (measured from EMG ) and their physiological cross-sectional area.
