Roughly three out of four people experience low back pain . Causes are generally unknown, but low back pain is often attributed to intervertebral disc degeneration. To understand low back pain better, much research has focused on a fundamental understanding of the disc. Physiologically analogous material properties may support improved modeling and understanding of disease progression. Unfortunately, to date, few material property data have been collected in a realistic environment.
