Example text

This component of the modeling process is well documented for the interested reader in McGill and Norman ( 1 986) and McGill ( 1992 ). A list of the large number of associated research papers pertaining to the many de­ tailed aspects of the process is provided in a separate reference section at the end of this chapter. See figures 2 . 4 and 2 . 5 for a flowchart and example of the modeling process. The instrumentation includes three-dimensional video to capture body segment kinematics, a recording of the three-dimensional force vector applied to the hand, a 3-SPACE electromagnetic device to record isolated three­ dimensional lumbar motion and assist in partitioning the passive tissue forces, and 16 channels of electromyographic electrodes to capture muscle activation patterns.

Norman et al. The second important study to successfully integrate biomechani­ ca l, psychosocial, and personal factors was conducted by Norman and colleagues (998), who examined injuries that occurred in an auto assembly plant that employed more than 10,000 hourly paid workers. During a two-year period of observation in the plant, the authors reported analyses on 104 cases and 130 randomly selected controls. Cases were people who reported low back pain (LBP) to a nursing station; controls were people randomly selected from company rosters who did not report pain.

Bogduk's point is certainly correct. However, because not all lesions are easily detectable, it cannot be used to argue that if a lesion is not detected there is no organic basis for pain. For example, fractures and meniscal tears that have been detected in postmortem studies have not shown radiologically on planar X ray (Jonsson et a I . , 1 99 1; Taylor, Twomey, and Corker, 1990) or on CT ( Schwarzer et aI . , 1 995) . Nor have freshly produced fractures and articular damage been outwardly detectable radiographically in animal models ( Yingling and McGill, 2000 ) .
