• trunk
  • The pelvis (plural pelves or pelvises) is either the lower part of the trunk of the human body between the abdomen and the thighs (sometimes also called pelvic region of the trunk) or the skeleton embedded in it (sometimes also called bony pelvis, or pelvic skeleton). (wikipedia.org)
  • The pelvic region of the trunk includes the bony pelvis, the pelvic cavity (the space enclosed by the bony pelvis), the pelvic floor, below the pelvic cavity, and the perineum, below the pelvic floor. (wikipedia.org)
  • The pelvic region of the trunk is the lower part of the trunk, between the abdomen and the thighs. (wikipedia.org)
  • The bony pelvis (pelvic skeleton) is the part of the skeleton embedded in the pelvic region of the trunk. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lumbosacral trunk, which is made up of L5 and a small branch of L4, effectively connects the lumbar and sacral plexuses. (wikipedia.org)
  • The sacral plexus is formed by the lumbosacral trunk, the first to third sacral ventral rami, and part of the fourth, the remainder of the last joining the coccygeal plexus. (wikipedia.org)
  • inferior
  • The pelvic outlet or inferior pelvic aperture is the region between the subpubic angle or pubic arch, the ischial tuberosities and the coccyx. (wikipedia.org)
  • The targeted region should be aimed inferior to the most prominent aspect of the greater trochanter, and medial to the landmark of the ischial tuberosity, at the depth of the posterior border of the proximal femur. (wikipedia.org)
  • flexion
  • Both flexion and extension exercises have been shown to help mitigate back pain and has been demonstrated to accomplish the following: a) significantly increase the canal area, b) increase the midsagittal diameter, c) increase the subarticular sagittal diameter, and d) increase all the foraminal dimensions significantly Seven of the variations of the WFEs are outlined below (Ref): Pelvic tilt. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the disease progresses, loss of spinal mobility and chest expansion, with a limitation of anterior flexion, lateral flexion, and extension of the lumbar spine, are seen. (wikipedia.org)
  • spinal
  • reported a lumbosacral nephrogenic rest including blastema (mature tubules and nephrons) in abundant stroma unassociated to spinal dysraphism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pediatr Neuroscie 15:100-103 Horestein M, Manci E, Walker A, Dehner LP (2004) Lumbosacral ectopic nephrogenic rest unassociated with spinal dysraphism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Also, the spinal cord has a varying width, ranging from 13 mm (1⁄2 in) thick in the cervical and lumbar regions to 6.4 mm (1⁄4 in) thick in the thoracic area. (wikipedia.org)
  • Much shorter than its protecting spinal column, the human spinal cord originates in the brainstem, passes through the foramen magnum, and continues through to the conus medullaris near the second lumbar vertebra before terminating in a fibrous extension known as the filum terminale. (wikipedia.org)
  • The human spinal cord extends from the foramen magnum and continues through to the conus medullaris near the second lumbar vertebra, terminating in a fibrous extension known as the filum terminale. (wikipedia.org)
  • pain
  • Lumbosacral stenosis is a common cause of pain in older, large breed dogs. (dfwvetsurgeons.com)
  • It is important to rule out other common causes of pain and difficulty rising, including hip dysplasia, cruciate ligament disease, lumbosacral neoplasia, diskospondylitis, thoracolumbar Type II IVDD, and degenerative myelopathy. (dfwvetsurgeons.com)
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction generally refers to pain in the sacroiliac joint region that is caused by abnormal motion in the sacroiliac joint, either too much motion or too little motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerve
  • Surgical options to manage LS disease include dorsal laminectomy to remove herniated disc, foramenotomy or facetectomy to relieve entrapped L7 nerve roots, or distraction and fusion of the LS region. (dfwvetsurgeons.com)
  • Internal to this peripheral region is the grey matter, which contains the nerve cell bodies arranged in the three grey columns that give the region its butterfly-shape. (wikipedia.org)
