Journal Article
MUTHURI, S.G., PAVLOVA, A.V., SAUNDERS, F.R., HARDY, R.J., GREGORY, J.S., BARR, R.J., MARTIN, K.R., ADAMS, J.E., KUH, D., ASPDEN, R.M. and COOPER, R. 2018. Associations between back pain across adulthood and spine shape in early old age in a British birth cohort. Scientific reports [online], 8, article ID 16309. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-34628-9

We aimed to examine whether back pain across adulthood was associated with spine shape at age 60–64 years. Data were from 1405 participants in the MRC National Survey of Health and Development, a nationally representative British birth cohort. Back p...

Variation in lifting kinematics related to individual intrinsic lumbar curvature: an investigation in healthy adults. (2018)
Journal Article
PAVLOVA, A.V., MEAKIN, J.R., COOPER, K., BARR, R.J. and ASPDEN, R.M. 2018. Variation in lifting kinematics related to individual intrinsic lumbar curvature: an investigation in healthy adults. BMJ open sport and exercise medicine [online], 4(1), article number 000374. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmjsem-2018-000374

Objective: Lifting postures are frequently implicated in back pain. We previously related responses to a static load with intrinsic spine shape, and here we investigate the role of lumbar spine shape in lifting kinematics. Methods: Thirty healthy adu...

Body mass index and waist circumference in early adulthood are associated with thoracolumbar spine shape at age 60-64: The Medical Research Council National Survey of Health and Development. (2018)
Journal Article

PLoS ONE [online], 13(6), article ID e0197570. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0197570

This study investigated associations between measures of adiposity from age 36 and spine shape at 60-64 years. Thoracolumbar spine shape was characterised using statistical shape modelling on lateral dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry images of the spi...
