The relative functions of spinal elements in resisting P-A shear stress are determined from measurements of force and displacement. The response of intact, enucleate and degenerate disks are presented, as well as stress-strain characteristics of the intervertebral disk and the roles of the articular facets and the nucleus pulposus.
