Five stages to reduce back pain through exercise Neurophysiological mechanisms of pain are highly modulated by movement and exercise. Models for measuring biological signals to assess risk The final approach for risk assessment is to measure biological signals from each subject to capture the unique ways people perform their jobs and then use sophisticated anatomical, biomechanical, and physiological relationships to assign forces to the tissues.
Postural tests for formal assessment A formal assessment of posture includes an assessment of sitting, standing, and lying.

Deyo also seems to assume that nonsurgical therapy has been appropriately chosen for each individual, whereas I suggest that inappropriate therapy prescriptions remain quite common. Professor Alf Nachemson 1 wrote that "most case control studies of cross sectional design that have addressed the mechanical and psychosocial factors influ encing LBP low back pain , including job satisfaction, have concluded that the latter play a more important role than the extensively studied mechanical factors.
Generally, these studies found that psychosocial vari ables were related to low back troubles, but in the absence of measuring mechanical loading, they had no chance to evaluate a loading relationship.
Finally, Dr. Nortin Hadler 1 has been rather outspoken, stating, for example, that "it is u nclear whether there is any meaningful association between task content and disabling regional musculoskeletal disorders for a wide range of physical disor ders" and that "on the other hand, nearly all multivariate cross sectional and longitudi nal studies designed to probe for associations beyond the physical demand of tasks, detect associations with the psychosocial context of working.
The position that biomechanics plays no role in back health and activity tolerance can be held only by those who have never performed physical labor and have not experienced firsthand the work methods 6 Low Back Disorders that must be employed to avoid disabling injury. While the scientific evidence is absolutely necessary, it will only confirm the obvious to those who have this experi ence.
I find it perversely satisfying when physicians tell me that they are now, after missing work as a result of a nasty back episode related to physical work, able to relate to their patients.

Perhaps experience with a variety of heavy work and with disabling pain should be required for some medics! It is, then, essential to investigate and understand the links among loading, tissue damage or irritation, psychosocial factors, and performance to provide clues for the design and implementation of better prevention and rehabilitation strategies for low back troubles.
In the following sections I will address several commonly held beliefs about back injury. This has led to the popular belief that disabling back troubles are inevitable and just happen, a statement that defies the plethora of literature linking specific mechanical scenarios to specific tissue damage.
Some have argued that this statement is simply the product of poor d iagnosis-or of clinicians reaching the end of their expertise e. In fairness I must point out that diagnosis often depends on the profession of the diagnostician.
Each group attempts to identify the primaly dysfunction according to its palticular type of t. For example, a physical therapist will attempt diagnosis to guide decisions regarding manual therapy approaches, while a surgeon may find a diagnOSis directed toward making surgical decisions more helpfu l. Some clinicians surgeons, for example seek a specific tissue as a pain candi date.
This has prompted research into which tissues are innervated and are candidates as pain generators. Biomechanists often argue that this may be irrelevant since a spine with altered biomechanics has altered tissue stresses. Thus a damaged tissue may cause overload on another tissue causing pain whether the damaged tissue is innervated or not.
This is why other clinicians employ skilled provocative mechani cal loading of specific tissues to reveal those that hurt or at least to reveal loading patterns or motion patterns that cause pain. These types of functional diagnoses are helpful in designing therapy and in developing less painful motion patterns, but the process of functional diagnoses will be hindered with a poor understanding of spine biomechanics.
Furthermore, those with a thorough understanding of the biomechan ics of tissue damage can be guided to a general diagnosis by reconstructing the insti gating mechanical scenario.
An additional benefit of this approach is that once the cause is understood, it can be removed or reduced. Unfortunately, many patients continue to have troubles simply because they continue to engage in the mechanical cause. Familiarity with spine mechanics will dispel this myth of undiagnosable back trouble and reduce the percentage of those with back troubles of no known cause. Even with a tissue-based diagnosis, the practice of treating all patients with a spe cific diagnOSiS with a Singular therapy has not proven productive Rose, For example, success rates with many cancer therapies greatly improved with the combi nation of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Optimal back rehabilitation requires re moval of the cause and the addition perhaps of stability, manual soft tissue therapy, or something else depending on the patient. Few patients fall into a "complete fit" for functional diagnosis where a Singular approach will yield optimal results. Both for interpretation of the literature and for clinical decision making, it would appear pru dent to question the diagnostic criteria needed before a given diagnOSiS is assigned.
Even given the current l imitations, the diagnostic approach is productive for guiding prevention and rehabilitation approaches. While there is no doubt that many chronic back cases have psychological overlays, the significance of psychology for back problems is often greatly exaggerated.
Ellen Thompson coined the phrase "bankrupt expertise" when referring to spine docs who are unable to guide improvement in their patients and default to blaming the patients and their psychoses. These physiCians either dismiss mechanical causa tion or assume that mechanical causation has been adequately addressed. At our university clinic I see patients who have been referred by physicians for consult. These are either elite performers or the very difficult chronic bad backs who have failed with all other approaches.
In spite of the fact that these people have received very thorough attention, I am continually heartbroken to hear about the minimal notice paid to ongoing back stressors and of the exercises that these "basket case backs" have been prescribed that have only exacerbated their condition.
The day before I wrote this section, I saw a classic example. A woman had suffered for five years on disability and had seen no fewer than 12 specialists from a variety of disciplines. Although several had acknowledged that she had physical concerns, her troubles were largely attributed to mental depression.
She consistently reported being unable to tolerate specific activities while being able to tolerate others. Some provocative testing confirmed her report together with uncover ing a previously undiagnosed arthritic hip. For years she had been faithfully following the instructions of her health care providers to perform pelvic tilts, knees-to-chest stretches first thing in the morning, and sit-ups; to take her large dog for walks; and so on.
All of these ill-chosen suggestions had prevented her posterior disc w ith sciatica -based troubles fro m improving. As we will see later, these types of troubles typically do not recover with flexion-based approaches-particularly first thing in the morning. Moreover, the lead-irrJ3bsed torsional loads that she experienced every time she walked her dog exceeded her tolerance. Although she reported vacuuming as a major exacerbator of her troubles, her health care providers had never shown her how to vacuu m her home in a way to spare her back.
I suggested that removing these daily activities and replacing the flexion stretches with neutral spine pOSition awareness training and isometric torso challenges would likely start a slow, progres sive recovelY pattern. I believed that her psychological concerns would probably disappear with her back symptoms if she fell into the typical pattern. This patient, with this typical story, has a reasonably good chance to enjoy l ife once again.
Note: this patient was back to work and off her antidepressant medication at the time of proofing this manuscript. None o f the "experts" this woman had seen-including physical therapists, chiro practors, psychologists, physiatrists, neurologists, and orthopods-addressed mechanical concerns.
This is not to condemn these professions but rather to suggest that sharing experiences and approaches will help us to be more successful in helping bad backs. Perhaps these professionals were unaware of the principles of spine function, the types of loads that are imposed on the spine tissues during certain activities, and how these activities and spine postures can be changed to greatly reduce the loads-in other words, the biomechanical components.

While it sounds velY harsh , I have found relatively few experts who appear willing to adequately address the causes of back troubles while working to find the most appropriate therapy. My years of laboratoly-based work combined with collabo ration in recent years with my clinical colleagues have provided me with unique insight. As a result, I am not so quick to blame the chronic patient.
Does Pain Cause Activity Intolerance? Evidence that mechanical tissue overload causes damage is conclusive. But does the damage cause pain, and does the chronic pain cause work intolerance? Several, but limited numbers of, studies have mechanically or chemically stimulated tissues to re produce clinical pain patterns.
The absence of definitive, large-scale studies is due to the ethical issues of performing invasive procedures and probably not because such studies are without scientific merit.
For example, the pioneering work of Hirsch and colleagues 1 documented pain from the injection of hypertonic saline into specific spine tissues thought to be candidates for damage. Subsequent to this work, several other studies suggested the link between mechanical stimu lation and pain, for example, the work of Hsu and colleagues 1 , documenting pain in damaged discs.
There is irrefutable evidence that vertebral disc end-plate fractures are very com mon and only result from mechanical overload Brinckmann, Bigemann, and Hilweg, 1 ; Gunning, Callaghan, McGill, 1. That these fractures are also found in necropsy specimens that were subjected to whiplash Taylor, Twomey, and Corker, 1 also strengthens another facet of this relationship.
Hsu performed discograms injections of radio contrast into discs of which 1 4 demonstrated leakage into the vertebral body, confirming an end-plate fracture. This evidence provides strong support for the notion that loading causes damage and damage causes pain.

Even though pain can limit function and activity in other areas of the body, some still suggest that these are not linked when a bad back is at issue. Teasell 1 provided an interesting perspective when he argued that in sports medicine, as op posed to occupational medicine, it is well accepted that some injuries require months of therapy or can even cause retirement from the activity.
He noted that athletes receiving specialized sports medicine care are an interesting group to consider since many are highly motivated, are in top physical condition, are well paid, have access to good medical care, and are fully compensated even while injured. Their injuries and pain can cause absence from play for substantial amounts of time and can even end their lucrative careers.

Part I introduces the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the lumbar spine.But does the damage cause pain, and does the chronic pain cause work intolerance?
Luoto and colleagues have shown that muscular endurance. In another experiment note again that our laboratory techniques to obtain QL activation were rather imprecise at the time , subjects stood upright with a bucket in each hand.
