Project Description

myAO clinical roundup on Spine Biomechanics
Biomechanics, the application of mechanical principles to living organisms, helps us to understand how all the bony and soft spinal components contribute individually and together to ensure spinal stability, and how traumas, tumours and degenerative disorders exert destabilizing effects.

myAO is offering you the following exclusive selection of "knowledge gems" around spine biomechanics.
