Evaluation of How Different Dosages of Spinal Manipulation Modulate Spinal Stiffness in Participants With Back Pain

This study evaluate the relationships between spinal manipulative therapy dosage (speed and peak force), the resulting modulation of thoracic spinal stiffness and changes in the clinical s...

Renal Magnetic Resonance (MR) Elastography in Healthy Volunteers

MR Elastography is a new technique aimed at non-invasively measuring the stiffness of tissues. It has recently given interesting results in the assessment of liver fibrosis. The objective...

Comparison of the Stiffness of the Lumbar Back Muscles Between Low Back Pain and Healthy Controls

Chronic low back pain remains a major public health issue. Low back pain is frequently associated with stiffness changes of the lumbar back muscles. The techniques which assess the stiffne...

Daily Intake of Cocoa Flavanols and Arterial Stiffness in Humans

A randomized, double-masked and cross-over dietary intervention study to investigate the effects of diet supplementation with cocoa flavanols on arterial stiffness in healthy adult human s...

Does Passive Spinal Mobilization Improve Shoulders Strength in Healthy Adults?

Previous studies have shown that peripheral muscles weakness or inhibition is related to spinal disorders. Passive mobilization and manipulation are likely to reverse such muscle weakness ...

Quantifying joint stiffness in clubfoot patients.

In clinical practice, clubfeet feel stiffer compared to healthy feet. Furthermore, the clinical impression is that stiffer clubfeet have a higher tendency to relapse. Until now, no objective measure h...

Large artery stiffness is associated with salt intake in young healthy black but not white adults: the African-PREDICT study.

There is global consensus on the benefits of reducing excessive salt intake. Indeed, lower salt intake associates with reduced arterial stiffness, a well-established predictor of cardiovascular risk, ...

Biomechanical analysis of spinal implants with different rod diameters under static and fatigue loads: an experimental study.

Spinal implants are commonly used in the treatment of spinal disorders or injuries. However, the biomechanical analyses of them are rarely investigated in terms of both biomechanical and clinical pers...

Range of Normal Liver stiffness and Predictors of Suspected Advanced Fibrosis in Apparently Healthy Individuals: A Pooled Analysis of 16,082 Participants.

Transient elastography (TE) is a noninvasive technique that measures liver stiffness (LSM) as a surrogate of fibrosis severity. LSM range in healthy and susceptible individuals is unclear. We aim to d...

Association between abdominal adiposity and 20-year subsequent aortic stiffness in an initially healthy population-based cohort.

Aortic stiffness is a feature of arterial aging and is associated with dismal cardiovascular prognosis. We examined whether central and general adiposity is an independent predictor of accelerated aor...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition characterized by neck stiffness, headache, and other symptoms suggestive of meningeal irritation, but without actual inflammation of the meninges (MENINGITIS). Spinal fluid pressure may be elevated but spinal fluid is normal. (DeJong, The Neurologic Examination, 4th ed, p673)

Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.

The 31 paired peripheral nerves formed by the union of the dorsal and ventral spinal roots from each spinal cord segment. The spinal nerve plexuses and the spinal roots are also included.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.
