ANALYSIS OF CERVICAL SPINE INJURY RISK IN SPORTS USING FINITE ELEMENT METHOD
Keywords: cervical spine, injury risk, finite element method
AbstractINTRODUCTION: Approximately 10,000 cervical spine injuries occur annually in the United States, with about 1,000 of these injuries resulting from sport-related events (Davis & McKelvey, 1998). In this study, we developed and validated the finite element model of cervical spine, and analyzed cervical spine injury risk using the model.
