  • Vertebral Column and Idiopathic Scoliosis Results

    Scoliosis‚ what is it? Not many people know exactly what it is. This disease has been around for a long time. Scoliosis is something this student thinks more people should know about and get checked frequently for too. This writer is diagnosed with scoliosis and doing this paper has helped her learn more about her own condition. The main focus of this paper is to help inform and educate people in society about scoliosis. Because of a tough schedule‚ this author had to rely on the Internet

    in an have a negative effect on the portion of the vertebral artery that passes through the transverse foramen of upper cervical spine.3 This negative effect can result in an increased susceptibility for a spontaneous Vertebral Artery Dissection. Thoracic kyphosis can present with three different forms of posture that include uncompensated‚ compensated and congruent posture.4 Each of these kyphotic postures can place the body at increased vertebral compressive loading. Results regarding posture‚ concluded

  • Vertebral Column Research Paper

    he backbone (vertebral column) is the central axis of the skeleton. It extends from the base of the skull to the bottom of the pelvis. It consists of 26 individual bones grouped into five separate regions; The vertebrae‚ twelve thoracic vertebrae‚ five lumbar vertebrae‚ one sacral bone and one coccygeal bone. (Cinnamon L. VanPutte‚ Jennifer L. Regan‚ Andrew F. Russo‚ McGraw-Hill‚ 2010.) The Vertebral column also host major curvatures; The sacral and thoracic both concaving anteriorly and the lumbar

  • Column Behavior Buckling

    Abstract Wood columns of various lengths were tested for strength and their ability to buckle. Using a compression machine‚ multiple wood columns are placed into compression until their critical yield was reached and depending on the length‚ they can buckle or get crushed. A graph showing the critical load vs the slenderness ratio was used to display several results obtain from the experiment.   Introduction The general aim of this experiment was to find whether the short‚ intermediate‚ and

  • Compression Test on Concrete Columns

    CIVIL ENGINEERING ABSTRACT This report describes a compression test on concrete columns. The main aim of the tests was to illustrate the ultimate strength limit state of reinforced concrete columns in combined bending and compression and to demonstrate the influence of slenderness on the ultimate load capacity. Test methods are described. It was found that the concrete columns exhibited complicated behaviour‚ and had a squash load point of 342.7KN and moment at 0 KN.m‚ a decompression

  • What Is The Zygapophysis?

    The vertebral column that houses the spinal cord is made up of many vertebrae which are grouped based on their location. The vertebral groups are divided (in a descending order) into seven cervical vertebrae (neck area)‚ twelve thoracic vertebrae (upper back)‚ five lumbar vertebrae (lower back)‚ sacrum (lower pelvis)‚ and coccyx (terminal end of spine). From the observations of the cervical‚ thoracic‚ and lumbar vertebrae‚ it was found that they all share the same unit structure. They all possessed

  • Bone Markings of the Vertebrae and Differences

    Compare the bone markings of the vertebrae and distinguish the differences between the cervical‚ thoracic‚ and lumbar vertebrae. The vertebrae are the irregular bones that create the spinal column. These irregular bones are divided into four sections which are the cervical‚ thoracic‚ lumbar‚ and sacral or pelvic spine sections‚ which are also referred to as curvatures. There are seven vertebrae that make up the cervical spine (neck); twelve vertebrae that make up the thoracic spine (chest); five
