  • fuse
  • To correct this problem of hypermobility, physicians may choose to fuse the damaged vertebrae together by means of a surgical procedure eliminating the rotatory mobility and adding stability. (google.com)
  • It consists of five vertebrae that fuse together as you mature to create a singular triangle-shaped bone. (healthline.com)
  • pedicles
  • The pedicles change in morphology from the upper lumbar to the lower lumbar. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the upper three vertebrae they arise from the junctions of the pedicles and laminae, but in the lower two they are set farther forward and spring from the pedicles and posterior parts of the vertebral bodies. (wikipedia.org)
  • articular
  • The facet is convex, faces outward (laterally), and articulates with the superior articular facet on the vertebra below. (getbodysmart.com)
  • They are situated in front of the articular processes instead of behind them as in the thoracic vertebrae, and are homologous with the ribs. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mammillary is connected in the lumbar region with the back part of the superior articular process. (wikipedia.org)
  • fascia
  • It originates from Poupart's ligament, the inner lip of the ilium, the lumbar fascia and the inner surface of the cartilages of the six lower ribs. (wikipedia.org)
  • horizontal
  • Then Molnar carefully attached one vertebra in a horizontal position to a wooden frame before hanging a weight from the unattached vertebra and measuring the amount that the vertebra bearing the weight had moved to calculate the stiffness of the joint. (biologists.org)
  • They are horizontal in the upper three lumbar vertebrae and incline a little upward in the lower two. (wikipedia.org)
  • region
  • However, when she compared the stiffness of the joints along the back, Molnar was intrigued to find that the joints in the lower back - the lumbar region - were stiffer than she had expected. (biologists.org)
  • The length of each vertebra in the lumbar region seems to have the greater influence on the strength of the horse's back. (wikipedia.org)
  • disc
  • With time, the fibers of the outer layer of the disc weaken and the fluid in the center of the disc dries out and the spaces between the vertebrae narrows. (medhelp.org)
  • If the disc between your vertebrae is leaking out of its location, the pressure on the nerves causes pain. (stjosephchiropractic.com)
  • The primary cause of sciatica is a bulging or herniated disc, putting pressure on the lumbar nerve roots. (cure-back-pain.org)
  • In April 2016, it was reported by the Brazilian press that Waked was undergoing a controversial non-surgical spinal decompression treatment for spinal disc herniation of the L1 and L2 lumbar vertebrae, coupled with a protrusion of L4 and L5, in the hope of still being able to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in his hometown of Rio de Janeiro. (wikipedia.org)
  • A retrospective chart review to evaluate the incidence of intervertebral disc damage after several astronauts developed cervical or lumbar herniated nucleus pulposus in the immediate postflight period. (wikipedia.org)
  • ribs
  • It originates from Poupart's ligament, the inner lip of the ilium, the lumbar fascia and the inner surface of the cartilages of the six lower ribs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aside
  • The back muscles are pushed aside rather than cut and the parts of the vertebra adjacent to the lamina are left intact. (wikipedia.org)
  • inch
  • I gained an inch in my lumbar fusions surgery! (blogspot.com)
  • The spinal cord itself is a bundle of a vast number of neurons, with a total diameter of about 1/2 inch at the brain, thinning to about 1/4 inch diameter at vertebrae L1. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • 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)
  • In most known cases of lumbar and thoracic laminectomies,[dead link] patients tend to recover slowly, with recurring pain or spinal stenosis persisting for up to 18 months after the procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • region
  • Causes of severe abdominal distension include abnormal levels of small intestine bacteria, increased curvature of the spine's lumbar region, and too much i. (reference.com)
