In comparison to the acute injury model, the lumbar paraspinal musculature overall was less potent in providing stability during flexion-extension in the chronic lesion groups. Possible reasons for that could be altered mechanisms in the neuromuscular feedback system or a fatiguing of the stabilizing muscles in the chronic injury groups. SUMMARY Injuries to the spine can affect different structures and in that way influence the biomechanical properties and kinematics of the intervertebral joint in different ways.
