Human Spine


A clinical view on the problem of increasing
back pain reveals and is based on various
causes, such as muscular tension,
degenerative spondylolisthesis or lumbar disc
herniation. In most cases neural parts are
compressed by non-physiological lesions of
adjacent structures such as degenerated
intervertebral discs, bony stenosis, vertebral
fractures, tumors or inflammation. To gain a
more detailed knowledge of these painful
syndromes, the working group "SPINE"
deals with basic research in the fields of spine
kinematics, 3D computer modeling, and
improvement of medical imaging to optimize
the diagnosis. In a close interdisciplinary
collaboration between doctors and
physiotherapists, this research group
builds a bridge between scientific research and
medical applications. The development of
innovative diagnostic methods, improved
pre- and post-operative planning, and
individual patient's training therapy are in the
focus of research.
