While past authors have advocated the quantitative assessment of comfort through CoP shifting , the current study employed a novel method of determining CoP shift  and its potential to represent the full range relationship of comfort to posture remains to be explored.
Total disc replacement is an experimental option, but no significant evidence supports its use over lumbar fusion.

This is a picture of my vegetable garden box 10 x 6-feet in size. The dirt is 2 feet above ground. When you stand on the ground with a shovel in the dirt 2 feet above you and try to dig or turn over the soil, you can compress your lower discs. I did it! So, off to the chiropractor I went. I was put on my front side to have the table decompress my lower lumbar area. It felt good, and I had things to do for myself at home now and I continue with my own therapy saving me money and time.
