Spinal Motion - Dose and diagnoses under consideration

Motion is propagated again and again as an activity for the prevention or treatment of back pain. However, it lacks a database for a basic understanding of spinal movements in everyday life, in order to answer the question about the right dose of exercise. The reliable assessment of these data is difficult and their interpretation complex. Furthermore, functional diagnostics are missing for differentiating subjects with and without low back pain in order to increase the efficiency of preventive intervention programs.
