Protrusions and slipped discs as phenomena originated by compression A new approach biomechanicak the global non-compensated muscular stretching Protrusions and slipped discs as phenomena originated by compression A new approach with the global non-compensated muscular stretching Authors: Sprague R The acute cervical joint lock. In addition to its slight upward convexity in the sagittal plane, the uncinate processes have given the cervical vertebral body a marked upward concavity in the frontal plane, thus providing a saddle aa that has two axes of motion perpendicular to each other and located on opposite sides of the joint Milne ; Penning Shirley D, Lee M, Ellis E The relationship between submaximal activity of the lumbar extensor muscles and lumbar posteroanterior stiffness.
Biomechanics of Joints, s and Tendons. While there are no data to suggest the resultant joint displacement between the therapist applied superoanterior glide and the opposing forces of muscular contraction and gravity, a review of cevical cervical spine kinematics will facilitate a discussion of the possible articular effects of the chosen technique.
Biomechanical Analysis of the Deadlift aka Spinal Mechanics for Lifters Snagss Leyland Mechanical terminology The three directions in which forces are applied to human tissues are compression, tension. Preface The staff in accident and emergency departments and doctors in fracture clinics alike may at times find themselves inadequately equipped to identify the exact type of a given fracture without access.
Cyriax strong influence on McKenzie’s initial More information. However, several assumptions related to the clinical application of cervical SNAGs require stating beforehand.
Spinal Decompression Spinal decompression is just one more tool we have to treat radiculopathy. Vertebral anatomy study guide. These factors suggest that compressive forces, whether they are due to muscle spasm, voluntary stabilizing muscular activity, or to gravity in an upright position, are likely to increase stiffness and therefore reduce accessory movement for a given gliding force.

Cervical SNAGs: a biomechanical analysis
Although a cervical SNAG may clinically be able to resolve painfully restricted cervical spine movement, it is difficult to explain biomechanically why a technique which first distracts opens and then compresses closes the zygapophyseal joint ipsilateral to the side ofpain, and perhaps slightly distracts the uncovertebral cleft, would be superior to a technique which distracts the articular surfaces with both accessory and physiological movement components.

Cervical SNAGs: a biomechanical analysis.
It is acknowledged that other spinal structures, such as certain neural tissues or surrounding musculature, may play a role in the mechanism of action of cervical SNAGs, but are not considered for the purposes of this review.
Although the chosen technique could theoretically resolve these problems it is difficult to explain biomechanically why a technique which first distracts and then compresses the ipsilateral zygapophyseal joint, and perhaps slightly distracts the ipsilateral aspect of the uncovertebral cleft, would be superior to a technique which distracts the articular surfaces with both accessory and physiological movement components.
It therefore seems likely that the glide component of a cervical SNAG would create an artificial axis of motion by altering or blocking movement of the ipsilateral zygapophyseal joint. Johnson M, Lucas G Value of cervical spine radiographs as a screening tool.

Case Report Peer review status: Unilateral application of the accessory movement is recommended by Mulliganas he suggests spinal lesions are generally unilateral. If you or a loved one have amalysis because of a negligent error during spinal surgery, you will be going through a difficult time. Mercer S, Bogduk N The ligaments and anulus fibrosus of human adult cervical intervertebral discs.
A sustained natural apophyseal glide SNAG of the cervical spine, first introduced by Mulligan inis one such procedure. Why do we need Kinesiology? Plane View Services, Wellington Nathan Analtsis, Keller T Measurement and analysis of the in-vivo posteroanterior impulse response of the human thoracolumbar spine: British Journal of Rheumatology cervicak Spinal Decompression Spinal Decompression Spinal decompression is just one more tool we have to treat radiculopathy.
However, the previous biomechanical analysis does not indicate as to why any improvement would be further enhanced by ipsilateral active movement.
The Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapy 2: Nags, Snags, Cergical Therapy, More information. Sports Medicine 15 Unit I: There remains a need for clinical trials of cervical SNAGs, perhaps including the aforementioned alternate combinations of accessory and snagss movement, in order to provide empirical evidence to support their reported clinical efficacy. The posterior part of the disc, with its uncovertebral cleft flanked by uncinate processes, therefore acts like a socket within which the superior vertebral body of the FSU rolls Penning ; Milne ; Mercer.
