spinal segment

spinal segment

a division of the spinal cord containing a bilateral pair of nerve roots. From the anterior to the posterior, the segments are referred to as cervical (C1-C8), thoracic (T1-T12), lumbar (L1-L5), sacral (S1-S5), and coccygeal (Co1-Co3).

The results of this study are interesting as they indicate that initial effects on painfree ROM with MWMs to the shoulder can be prolonged by adding a simple strip of tape applied from the anterior shoulder, over the acromion and diagonally across the scapula to a point approximately level with the T7 spinal segment.
The second patient, now after five weeks with a lesion at T1 spinal segment has almost complete sensory recovery, including bladder sensation, and has voluntary muscle contraction in both proximal [near] and distal [far] groups of muscles in his lower extremities.
Several other authors later developed sophisticated testing apparatuses and techniques, often fixating portions of the spinal segment, which limits physiological motion.
He said: "Unlike the traditional method of fusing the vertebrae, the Wallis Stabilisation technique is a soft stabilisation that allows some movement in the particular spinal segment.
It was designed to achieve stabilization of the diseased spinal segment while closely replicating its natural function, for better long term results.
Moreover, knowledge of the topography of the spinal cord is indispensable in clinical practice for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of vertebromedullary injuries, and it is sometimes necessary to locate injuries of the central nervous system at a vertebral level, a method that is possible by associating specific sensory and motor deficiencies in a given spinal segment (DYCE et al.
The next step in the development of such structures can be regarded as the development of the company <<Paradigm Spine>> together with the company <<Porshe>>, is consisting of a rod, which longitudinally fixed vertebral bodies with polyaxial transpedicular screws, and contain elements to ensure the mobility of the stabilized spinal segment.

It also has new information on dealing with both regional instability or mobility and regional stiffness in individuals where most of the motion occurs at a single spinal segment.
Combining disc or nucleus replacement therapy with facet replacement expands the market for these technologies and gives surgeons all the tools they need to rebuild the entire spinal segment," said Jim Fitzsimmons, chairman and chief executive officer.
Consistent with ASIA standards, clinical sensory level was determined separately for the right and left sides of the body and defined as the most caudal spinal segment with normal sensory function for both sensory modalities (i.
Sarah Key, author of The Back Sufferer's Bible:It sounds as if you are suffering both referred pain from a malfunctioning spinal segment, and a degree of actual irritation of one of the spinal nerve roots, which gives you the pain further down the leg.
