  • cervical spine
  • The degree of serious risks associated with manipulation of the cervical spine is uncertain, with little evidence of risk of harm but also little evidence of safety either. (wikipedia.org)
  • He is also responsible for numerous other medical innovations that all carry his name: 'Thomas's collar' to treat tuberculosis of the cervical spine, 'Thomas's manoeuvre', an orthopedic investigation for fracture of the hip joint, Thomas test, a method of detecting hip deformity by having the patient lying flat in bed, 'Thomas's wrench' for reducing fractures, as well as an osteoclast to break and reset bones. (wikipedia.org)
  • Physical
  • Failed attempts at other standard conservative treatment methods (i.e., manipulation, physical therapy, medication), over a sufficient time-frame, is one of the principal patient qualifiers. (wikipedia.org)
  • The earliest documented origins of actual physical therapy as a professional group date back to Per Henrik Ling, "Father of Swedish Gymnastics," who founded the Royal Central Institute of Gymnastics (RCIG) in 1813 for manipulation, and exercise. (wikipedia.org)
  • neutral
  • However, after re-examining the original studies on which the kinematic models of joint manipulation were based, Evans and Breen argued that the optimal prethrust position is actually the equivalent of the neutral zone of the individual joint, which is the motion region of the joint where the passive osteoligamentous stability mechanisms exert little or no influence. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • Jean-André Venel established the first orthopedic institute in 1780, which was the first hospital dedicated to the treatment of children's skeletal deformities. (wikipedia.org)
  • therapy
  • However, it has been pointed out that "critics of manipulative therapy emphasize the possibility of serious injury, especially at the brain stem, due to arterial trauma after cervical manipulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • sports
  • The definition includes many rheumatic diseases, sports injuries and rehabilitation of orthopedic and neurological diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • These studies were therefore never designed to form models of therapeutic manipulation, and the models formed were erroneous in that they described the target joint as being configured at the end range of a rotation movement, during the orientation phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • North America
  • In North America and Europe, joint manipulation is most commonly performed by chiropractors (estimated to perform over 90% of all manipulative treatments), American-trained osteopathic physicians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and European osteopaths. (wikipedia.org)
  • fragments
  • To enable efficient cloning and manipulation of genomic DNA fragments for the purposes of gene expression and reporter-gene studies we have combined aspects of the Gateway system and a bacteriophage-based homologous recombination (i.e. recombineering) system. (nih.gov)
  • Joint
  • In the context of healthcare, joint manipulation is performed by several professional groups. (wikipedia.org)
  • Manipulation can be distinguished from other manual therapy interventions such as joint mobilization by its biomechanics, both kinetics and kinematics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Early models describing the kinematics of an individual target joint during the various phases of manipulation (notably Sandoz 1976) were based on studies that investigated joint cracking in MCP joints. (wikipedia.org)
  • These studies were therefore never designed to form models of therapeutic manipulation, and the models formed were erroneous in that they described the target joint as being configured at the end range of a rotation movement, during the orientation phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, after re-examining the original studies on which the kinematic models of joint manipulation were based, Evans and Breen argued that the optimal prethrust position is actually the equivalent of the neutral zone of the individual joint, which is the motion region of the joint where the passive osteoligamentous stability mechanisms exert little or no influence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Joint manipulation is characteristically associated with the production of an audible 'clicking' or 'popping' sound. (wikipedia.org)
  • physical
  • Following the labelling system developed by Geoffery Maitland, manipulation is synonymous with Grade V mobilization, a term commonly used by physical therapists. (wikipedia.org)
  • The earliest documented origins of actual physical therapy as a professional group date back to Per Henrik Ling, "Father of Swedish Gymnastics," who founded the Royal Central Institute of Gymnastics (RCIG) in 1813 for manipulation, and exercise. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pain
  • Life had been good to me until a fateful visit with an orthopedic physician, my chief complaint being mild arthritic pain in my toes. (sott.net)
  • deep
  • When the glide of oils and cremes makes it difficult to obtain the manipulation you need for relief of deep, knotted muscles or trigger points, Deep-Tissue Lotion is the perfect formula for the job. (balegoonline.org)
  • process
  • Manipulation: This can be a physiotherapy process provided in Winnipeg clinics where pressure is applied to the joints using fingers or specialized gadgets. (blogminds.com)
