Abstract

Sagittal alignment of the spine alters during the pubertal growth spurt. Using a musculoskeletal model, we simulated these alterations by choosing Thoracic Kyphosis and Sagittal Vertical Alignment as variable parameters. Results indicated that, by increasing these parameters as the posterior inclination of the spine decreases through the growth spurt, the intervertebral compression forces of the thoracolumbar spine increase.
