Flashcards in Thoracic and Lumbar Palpation & Diagnosis Deck (14)
Important diagnosis procedures.
Note bumps in back (rotated segment), notice restriction of rotation.
What landmark denotes the TV2 process?
superior angle of the scapula
spine of scapula
inferior angle of scapula
Diagnostic criteria for SD
In what plane must motion testing be done?
List freedom of movement by motion
In what order should you then check.
Rotation, then sagittal plane, then sidebending.
Rule of 3's?
Not really sure the slides weren't clear, someone explain. My view was that three vertebrae will be rotated together, opposite sides.
Type I fryette's?
Rotation and sidebending to opposite sides, in neutral. Usually multiple segments. (3+)
Usually long sidebending muscles.
Type II Fryette's
Rotation and sidebending to same side in flexion or extension. Usually single segment.
Usually intersegmental paraspinal muscles.
Describe Type II facets in flexion
Both facets should “close” but with a unilateral flexed SD one of the facets is “locked open”
The “open” side won’t extend so the vertebrae rotates and sidebends to the opposite side as the “locked open” facet (around the “closed” facet)
