Via Wolffs Law, which states that calcium is laid down on bone in response to physical forces placed upon the bone, compression loading of the facets can lead to osteoarthritic (also known as degenerative joint disease) bone spurs, which can further narrow the size of the IVF, increasing the likelihood that a bulging or herniated disc will cause compression of a nerve root there (See Figure 3).
This set up allows the piles to avoid compression loading, but leaves them free to tense against any seismic movement as well as offering a degree of resistance to shearing or overturning forces.
