Mechanics of Human Lower Back and Occupational Low Back Pain

University of Kentucky, Central Appalachian ERC

May 15, 2019 | Presented By: Babak Bazrgari, PhD

During this webinar, Dr. Bazrgari will describe the theoretical framework utilized by his lab to investigate the role of lower back biomechanics in occupational low back pain. Learners will also explore the experimental and computational methods used for studying lower back biomechanics, and review examples of research conducted in the Human Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Lab at the University of Kentucky.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the role of biomechanical factors in occupational low back pain

  • Discuss novel methodologies that are currently used in investigations of human lower back mechanics

  • Describe the influence of workplace factors on lower back biomechanics
