Introduction
Methods of sectioning 266 autopsy spines
• Section 1: Normal Anatomy
1 Structure and function
2 Disc: its part and their functions
3 Facets: structure and function
4 Nerves: In spinal canal and intervertebral foramen
5 Muscles and Movement
• Section 2: Age changes
1 Osteoporosis: effects on vertebrae and on disc shape
2 Degenerative changes in discs
3 Disc fissuring and disc protrusion
4 Decline in ranges of movement with increase in age
5 Increase creep with age
6 Facet changes: arthritic changes; remodeling
7 Spinal stenosis and nerve impingement
8 Severe disc changes and segmental instability
9 Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis
10 Facet joint fat pads: their increase in early instability
• Section 3: Injuries
1 Thoracic and lumbar injuries contrast with cervical injuries
2 Vertebral end-plate fracture and collapse
3 Facet joint injuries: which are often occult.
• Section 4: Lower Back Pain and Radicular Pain
1 The lumbar spine and cancer metastases.

This exceptional book is a collection of more than 140 anatomical images documenting the development, maturation and ageing of the lumbar spine and pathologies associated with ageing and injury. It provides a unique guide to support the clinical diagnosis of lumbar spine trauma and pain due to age and injury.

The collection represents the extensive research conducted by Professor James Taylor into the lumbar spine gathered from his study of 266 autopsies over almost a decade. It complements The Cervical Spine: An atlas of normal anatomy and the morbid anatomy of ageing and injuries, based on the same collection.

With legislative changes now making collection of such work impossible in Australia, this book makes a never-to-be-repeated contribution to the understanding of spinal injury and rehabilitation globally, and will be invaluable for patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Unique, high-quality images document age-related and injury-induced changes to the lumbar spine Combination of wet specimens and stained specimens Includes many soft-tissue specimens Unprecedented breadth and diversity in range of injuries covered Logical sequence from normal anatomy, through to age-related changes and changes resulting from injury Invaluable for students of physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy An eBook included in all print purchases.
