ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of research which was conducted in an effort to determine the three dimensional in vivo kinetic data in patients in an outpatient clinical setting and to develop a mathematical model. The research also sought to calculate and compare the three dimensional in vivo kinetics of normal, degenerative and fused cervical spines of patients to see if surgical intervention is associated with differences in the forces generated at various levels of the spine.
