Om Lumbar Spine Disorders
This book draws together recent results and ideas from most of the leading UK researchers into back pain. The emphasis is on disorders of the lumbar spine, their pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment. This is in contrast to most books on the spine which either concentrate on the normal spine or deal with a specialised approach such as surgery. By drawing together contributions from a wide range of clinical and scientific backgrounds, including alternative therapies such as osteopathy and chiropractice, the problem of low back pain is shown to be complex and multifactorial.Contents: The Curved, Flexible Spine and the Functions of Ligaments and Muscles (R M Aspden)Biomechanics of the Intervertebral Disc ߞ Disc Pressure Measurements and Significance (D S McNally)Neuropeptides in the Lumbar Spine (I K Ashton & S M Eisenstein)Growth and Development of the Lumbar Vertebral Canal (R W Porter)Measurement of Vertebral Blood Flow and Its Significance in Disc Disease (A M C Thomas et al.)The Role of Vascular Damage in the Development of Nerve Root Problems (M I V Jayson & A J Freemont)Fear-Avoidance: The Natural History of Back Pain and Its Management (J D G Troup & P D Slade)Costs and Effectiveness: Approaches to the Management of Back Pain (J A K Moffett & G Richardson)and other papersReadership: Clinicians and researchers in orthopaedics and rheumatology.Key Features:First book where the key theory and machinery of the reflecting diffusion processes on Riemannian manifolds with boundary are systematically introducedFirst book to clarify intrinsic links between the semigroup properties on one hand and geometric quantities (curvature and second fundamental form) on the other, and these links are introduced in an easy to understand manner: by formulating geometric quantities using short time behaviors of derivatives of the semigroup, whereby a reader can easily comprehend the equivalence of semigroup properties associated with lower bounds of these geometric quantitiesFirst book where stochastic analysis on Riemannian manifolds with boundary are introduced
