  • diagnosis
  • It is anticipated that this technology will establish the usefulness of connective tissue motion measurements for the diagnosis and clinical management of chronic musculoskeletal pain in general, including low back pain. (sbir.gov)
  • Joints
  • The tissue can also be found between joints such as the knees to prevent the connecting bones from grinding together during movement. (wisegeek.com)
  • Organization
  • It attempts to answer some general questions about the biological organization of the tissues: What is the nature of this organization at various dimensional levels? (springer.com)
  • bones
  • Discs are circular pads of connective tissue which separate the individual vertebrae in the spine.They act as cushions or shock absorbers between the bones, providing stability and mobility in the back. (articlealley.com)
  • Search
  • On the other hand, I have not hesitated to search for broad biological principles outside the prevailing conceptual boundaries of animal connective tissues and the lower molecular dimensional levels. (springer.com)
  • cells
  • Characterization of Cell-Associated and Soluble Forms of Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) Produced by Fibroblast Cells in Vitro," Growth Factor (1998) 15:199-213. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • Some of these tissues, such as blood, contain living cells that are grouped together and carry nutrients throughout the body. (wisegeek.com)
  • Fibrous connective tissue, however, does not contain any living cells, as its main function is support and structure throughout the body. (wisegeek.com)
  • It's fascinating how the cells of the human body are able to detect when body tissue is too old to function properly. (wisegeek.com)
  • Then the tissue cells break down and new ones are generated. (wisegeek.com)
  • outcome
  • Its purpose is to function as an outcome measure to monitor the effect of therapies that may have a therapeutic effect on connective tissue including manual therapies and yoga as well as acupuncture. (sbir.gov)
  • clinical
  • The CTMM also will potentially serve as a clinical diagnostic and treatment-monitoring tool for manual therapists, acupuncturists, and CAM clinicians interested in assessing the functional status of a patient's connective tissue. (sbir.gov)
