• cervical
  • Again, the tendency is to increase SI motion after adjusting fixations more on the right side as you ascend the spine to the cervical region. (dynamicchiropractic.com)
  • Given the key role of electrodiagnostic testing in the diagnosis of acute and chronic radiculopathies, the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine has issued evidence-based practice guidelines, for the diagnosis of both cervical and lumbosacral radiculopathies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Knee Joint
  • Many of the leg's muscles are also adapted to bipedalism, most substantially the gluteal muscles, the extensors of the knee joint, and the calf muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • This line stretches from the hip joint (or more precisely the head of the femur), through the knee joint (the intercondylar eminence of the tibia), and down to the center of the ankle (the ankle mortise, the fork-like grip between the medial and lateral malleoli). (wikipedia.org)
  • Divergence from the normal femorotibial angle is called genu varum if the center of the knee joint is lateral to the mechanical axis (intermalleolar distance exceeds 3 cm), and genu valgum if it is medial to the mechanical axis (intercondylar distance exceeds 5 cm). (wikipedia.org)
  • b): Fragments of Needles in the Knee-Joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • thoracic
  • Lower thoracic adjusting tends to increase bilateral and right-sided SI motion most predominantly, although occasionally it may also increase left SI joint motion more than the right side. (dynamicchiropractic.com)
  • In the thoracic region they remain distinct from each other and each innervates a narrow strip of muscle and skin along the sides, chest, ribs, and abdominal wall. (wikipedia.org)
  • In regions other than the thoracic, ventral rami converge with each other to form networks of nerves called nerve plexuses. (wikipedia.org)
  • ligamentous
  • Inclination angles (joint angle from a reference line placed in the dorsal plane) of the synovial and ligamentous joint components were measured on transverse plane images at a cranial and caudal location. (massey.ac.nz)
  • findings
  • Animals - The study was comprised of 10 working German Shepherd dogs and 12 racing Greyhounds without history or evidence of lumbosacral region pain or neurological abnormalities, and 6 German Shepherd dogs with histories and examination findings consistent with lumbosacral region pain. (massey.ac.nz)
  • degenerative
  • Two other cases had degenerative articular cartilage changes at the sacrococcygeal joint, and the postsurgical outcome was excellent in 1 of these patients and good in the second one. (medscape.com)
  • Pathological hypomobility (too little movement) of the sacroiliac joint is an intra-articular disorder in which the joint locks due to wearing down with age or degenerative joint disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Degenerative anterolisthesis (a.k.a. type 3) is a disease of the older adult that develops as a result of facet arthritis and joint remodeling. (wikipedia.org)
  • femur
  • Notable exceptions to palpation are the hip joint, and the neck and body, or shaft of the femur. (wikipedia.org)
  • coccygeal
  • However, be aware that there is substantial baseline, preinjury coccygeal variability with regard to the angulation of the coccygeal vertebrae and the sacrococcygeal joint, the degree of fusion between the coccygeal vertebrae and the sacrococcygeal joint, and the total number of coccygeal vertebrae. (medscape.com)
  • structures
  • Likely, this is a result of altered gait patterns and repetitive stress to the SI joint and related structures. (wikipedia.org)
  • The primary benefit is supposed to be the opening of the intervertebral foramen, the stretching of ligmentous structures, and the distraction of the apophyseal joints. (wikipedia.org)
  • femoral
  • Additionally, a line drawn through the femoral neck superimposed on a line drawn through the femoral condyles forms an angle, the torsion angle, which makes it possible for flexion movements of the hip joint to be transposed into rotary movements of the femoral head. (wikipedia.org)
  • inguinal
  • Its terminal branch then runs parallel to the inguinal ligament to exit the aponeurosis of the abdominal external oblique above the external inguinal ring where it supplies the skin above the inguinal ligament (i.e. the hypogastric region) with the anterior cutaneous branch. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscular
  • With multiple small joints (each with its own capsule), and an elaborate system of muscular and connective tissue layers and interconnections, it is very difficult to have an injury to only one or the other. (dynamicchiropractic.com)
  • back
  • Most of these products do require the user to re-position them after rising from a sitting position because of how low they're worn over the lumbosacral region of your back. (spineuniverse.com)
