173 patients with degenerative disc disease were randomized to determine the segmental movement, disc height, and sagittal alignment following total disc replacement (TDR). Patients received either TDR or multidisciplinary rehabilitation (MDR), and were assessed after 2 years. Results indicated that there was no significant change in the movement of the sagittal plane. Moreover, there was no corre...
