Abstract: Introduction: The human spine is exposed to many different loads during daily activities and especially during sporting activities. The spine has different biomechanical properties during the lifetime and thereby responds differently to repetitive and sudden loads. The correlation of differ-ent motions and load exposures to spine and back problems have not yet been fully clarified. Aim: To investigate the effect of repetitive loading of different magnitude and motion on the spine with both clin... more
