The posterior unload of the disc generates an overload on its anterior portion [9], forcing the dislocation of the nucleus pulposus posteriorly (the same mechanism is reproduced during the anterior flexion of the trunk, majorly responsible for the herniation of the nucleus pulposus) theoretically increasing the risk of disc herniation.
