Human Spinal Column

  1. Human spinal column consists of 33 separate bone segments known as vertebrae held together by ligaments (tough and fibrous tissue). (Web site)

Hollow Tube

  1. Nerves The hollow tube formed by the bony rings on the back of the spinal column surrounds the spinal cord.

Largest Bones

  1. The lumbar (L) vertebrae are the five lowest and largest bones of the spinal column.

Lumbar Vertebrae

  1. The lumbar vertebrae are the bones of the spinal column. (Web site)

Bony

  1. Brain and spinal cord tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found inside the skull or the bony spinal column.
  2. The length of the spinal cord is much shorter than the length of the bony spinal column. (Web site)
  3. Spondylolysis is a defect in the bony ring of the spinal column. (Web site)

Cartilage

  1. Vertebrae in the spinal column are separated from each other by small cushions of cartilage known as intervertebral disks. (Web site)
  2. Cartilage is found between bones, in the nose, throat and in the spinal column. (Web site)

Infants

  1. Many infants with diastrophic dysplasia also have abnormalities of bones within the spinal column (vertebrae). (Web site)
  2. It should be noted that laboratory tests in some infants with UTI may suggest the presence of meningitis (inflammation of the spinal column). (Web site)
  3. A malformation of the spinal column during fetal development causes kyphosis in some infants.

Symptoms

  1. Though sometimes the tumor grows so slowly that the spinal column is able to adapt to it and make room for it such that a person suffers very few symptoms. (Web site)
  2. Like a tumor, a cyst can apply pressure to the spinal column or the nerves, leading to pain and other symptoms.
  3. The symptoms are caused by tissue attachments that limit the movement of the spinal cord within the spinal column.

Nerve Damage

  1. Growing bubbles in joints, or the spinal column or brain can cause mechanical pressure, nerve damage and severe pain.

Chest

  1. The source may be from other structures and organs within the chest, the chest wall itself, the spinal column, or the abdomen. (Web site)

Front

  1. This huge artery curves up and back from the left ventricle, then heads down in front of the spinal column into the abdomen. (Web site)
  2. The spinal cord is not cut-only the bones of the vertebrae in the front of the spinal column.

End

  1. The spinal column extends from the first vertebra, Atlas bone, to the end of the trunk. (Web site)

Bend

  1. This curvature causes the spinal column to bend to the left or the right, in the shape of an S or a C. It is found more frequently in girls than boys. (Web site)

Invertebrate

  1. Invertebrate is a term coined by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck to describe any animal without a spinal column.
  2. Invertebrate is a kind of animal that does not have a spinal column or backbone.

Nervous System

  1. A common interference to the nervous system is the 24 moving bones of the spinal column.

  3. Kundalini Yoga - There is huge dormant energy called Kundalini Shakti situated at the base of the spinal column. (Web site)

X-Rays

  1. Using X-rays for guidance, a wire is threaded up the along the front of the spine, following the natural contours of the spinal column.

Dye

  1. X-rays cannot penetrate the dye, so the spinal column and the nerves show up.

Disc

  1. Each nerve root passes from the spinal column to other parts of the body through small openings bounded on one side by the disc and the other by the facets. (Web site)

Result

  1. In the spine, OA may result in thickening of the ligaments surrounding the spinal column.
  2. Congenital kyphosis (Q76.4) can result in infants whose spinal column has not developed correctly in the womb.

Neural Tube Defects

  1. Neural tube defects are birth defects that result from the failure of part of the spinal column to close approximately 28 days after conception.
  2. Neural tube defects (NTD) in the skull or spinal column (risk of 2% with valproate and 1% with carbamazepine).

Neck

  1. Located at the top of the spinal column, these bones form a flexible framework for the neck and support the head. (Web site)

Surgeon

  1. During the operation, the surgeon lifts off the small muscles that run along the back of the spinal column. (Web site)

Injury

  1. In general, the higher in the spinal column the injury occurs, the more dysfunction a person will have.
  2. Back braces can be necessary when an injury creates instability to the spinal column, as it will protect the back from further injury. (Web site)
  3. Although the hard vertebrae protect the soft spinal cord from injury most of the time, the spinal column is not all hard bone.

Nerve Roots

  1. In fact, the main function of the spinal column (in addition to providing movement for the torso) is to encase and protect the spinal cord and nerve roots. (Web site)

Lower End

  1. The sciatic nerve is the large nerve that extends from the lower end of the spinal column in the pelvis and all the way down the leg.

Spinal Fusion

  1. Spinal fusion is a technique to fuse, or weld, two or more segments of vertebrae in the spinal column.
  2. SPINAL FUSION - Operative method of strengthening and limiting motion of the spinal column. (Web site)

Fusion

  1. Fusion surgery requires bone to be grafted into the spinal column. (Web site)
  2. But if the spinal column is unstable and fusion is required, there is a recovery period of months to more than a year, and relief of symptoms is less likely. (Web site)
