Intervertebral disc degeneration relates to biomechanical changes of spinal ligaments

Intervertebral disc degeneration relates to biomechanical changes of spinal ligaments

Aging is primarily related to biomechanical changes to the LF.(ligamentum flavum)


IVD-degeneration is related to a relevant reduction in stiffness and ultimate strength of the LF and ISL&SSL(interspinous ligament, supraspinous ligmanet) , with a similar trend for the ITL (intertransverse ligament)



The ligamentum flavum is essential for maintaining upright posture, it helps to preserve the normal curvature of the spine and helps to straighten the spinal column after it has been flexed


Interspinous ligament is essential for limiting flexion through restricting the separation of the spinous processes of the vertebral column


Supraspinous ligament is essential for maintaining the upright position of the head
