# Biomechanics of the Spine & Hip Movements of

Biomechanics of the Spine & Hip Movements of Spine Flexion, Rotation, Extension, Abd, Add. Hip Movements Elevation, Anterior & Posterior Tilt, Flexion, Extension, Abd, Add, Hyperext, Hyperflex Spinal Deviations Lordosis Kyphosis

Scoliosis Forces Acting On The Spine Forces Acting On The Spine Include: Body Weight Tension In The Spinal Ligaments

Tension In The Surrounding Muscles Intraabdominal Pressure The Major Form Of Loading On The Spine Is: Axial Upright Position Spinal Compression Resulting From: Body Weight + Weight Held by Arms and Hands

When Standing Upright Total Body Center of Gravity Is Anterior to the Spinal Column. Spine Is Placed Under Constant Forward Bending Moment. Torque Defined: The Rotary Effect of a Force

About An Axis of Rotation, Measured as the Producer of the Force and the Perpendicular Distance Between the Forces Line of Action And The Axis To Maintain An Upright Position Torque Is Counteracted by Tension in the Back Extensor Muscles. Spinal Muscles Role In Lifting Spinal Muscles Have Small Moment Arms With

Respect To the Vertebral Joints. Have To Generate Large Forces To Counteract the Torque Produced About the Spine by Body Weight and Objects Being Lifted. Erector Spinae Muscles

Why Lift With The Legs? Back Muscles, With a Moment Arm of Approximately 6 cm, Must Counter The Torque Produced by the Weights of the Body Plus Any External Loads. Question: How Much Torque Is Developed By

The Erector Spinae Muscles With a Fm 6 cm? 1 lb. = 4.448 Newtons Segment Weight Moment Arm Head Trunk

Arms Box 13 lbs. (58N) 73.75 lbs.(328N) 18.2 lbs. (81N) 24.95 lbs.(111N) 25 cm 10 cm 20 cm

40 cm Torque at L5-S1= (328N)(10cm) + (81N)(20cm) + (58N)(25cm) + (111N)(40cm) =? 10,790 Ncm Force? 0 = (Fm)(6cm) - 10,790 In static position, sum

of the torques acting at any point is zero. Fm = 1798.33 N or (404.30 lbs.) Problem for a 135 lb. Person How much force must be developed by the erector spinae with a moment arm of 6 cm. From the L5-S1 joint center to maintain the body in a lifting position with segment moment arms as Specified? Segment WeightMoment Arm Head 50 N 22 cm.

Trunk 280 N 12 cm. Arms 65 N 25 cm. Box Lifted 100 N 42 cm. Torque ? 10,285 Ncm Fm = 1714 N or (393 lbs. Force) What Does The Research Show? % Load Compression On L3 During the Upright Standing, Lying Down, and Sitting.

Compression Increases More with Spinal Flexion, and Increases Still Further with a Slouched Sitting Position. Common Injuries Of The Back
