  • limb
  • Mechanical lameness is caused by a physical abnormality, such as scar tissue, that prevents normal motion of a limb. (wikipedia.org)
  • patella
  • Classic examples of mechanical lameness include upward fixation of the patella and fibrotic myopathy, but any type of adhesion (often secondary to scarring during healing post-injury) or fibrosis can cause mechanical lameness. (wikipedia.org)
  • disc
  • By virtue of their posteriorly implanted approach, the disclosed artificial FSU's allow for posterior decompression of the neural elements, reconstruction of all or part of the natural functional spinal unit, restoration and maintenance of lordosis, maintenance of motion, and restoration and maintenance of disc space height.

  • signs
  • Basically, chiropractors adjust the vertebrae of the spine because signs of articular dysfunction (eg, restricted mobility, abnormal alignment, or inflammation) are present. (chiro.org)
  • normal range
  • If the load that is applied is resisted by the individual within his or her normal range of motion, then injury is unlikely. (chiro.org)
  • "R" is for range of motion--knowing the normal range is necessary for detecting early changes, and relying on the opposite side to be normal is not appropriate, because many conditions will be present bilaterally. (vin.com)
