STUDY DESIGN Human cadaveric cervical spines were subjected to nondestructive repeated-measures flexibility tests before, during, and after unilateral facet dislocation. OBJECTIVES To assess the relative stability and kinematics of the spine in the normal condition, after unilateral facet lock without bony injury and after reducing (unlocking) the facet dislocation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Experimental unilateral facet dislocation has been studied only when associated with extensive… CONTINUE READING
