Abstract(s)The intradiscal pressure has been essential for prevent the spinal complaints by forming a basis for clinical advice to promote the correct sitting postures. As a consequence, it is evident the need of an accurate method for measure the intradiscal pressure, to better understand the disc response to hydorstatic pressure fluctuations. Numerous reviews regarding disc mechanics are available, including intradiscal pressure benchmarks; however, an analysis on the techniques of intradiscal pressure measurement is needed. Therefore, this review will remain focused on the methodologies adopted for measure the intradiscal pressure in several conditions: for different daily activities, under external loads and for values where occurs annulus fibrosus disruption. The importance of the intradiscal pressure on disc function will be discussed as well as the some guidelines for design new measurement techniques will be defined.
