Simulation of a low back pain treatment using a generic finite element model

Abstract : Every year, about 50% of French population is suffering of low back pain [Fassier, 2011]. A usual part of treatment is lumbar belt wearing. Nevertheless the biomechanical and physiological impacts are not clearly understood. In this study, the application of lumbar belt on the trunk is simulated by a finite element model. The objective of this model is to determine the impacts of wearing lumbar belt in abdominal pressure, spine posture and inter-vertebral disc pressure.
