This technical paper written in 1987 when I was confident that I had fully understood the mechanical problem of low back pain. It was rejected by Spine and The Journal of Biomedical Engineering.

Thirty years later I had been a chiropractor, an office chair manufacturer and a car seat designer and manufacturer. I was even more confident in the arguments and had the additional knowledge and experience. So, I decided to resubmit the same paper to Science Advances in 2016. It was rejected by return of post! This is the paper; “The Obstetric Reason for Lordosis and the Implications for Lifting and Low Back Pain”
