  • Synovial fluid
    Synovia, more often called synovial fluid, is a viscous, non-Newtonian fluid found in the cavities of synovial joints.
  • Kyphosis
    Kyphosis (from Greek κυφός kyphos, a hump) refers to the abnormally excessive convex kyphotic curvature of the spine as it occurs in the cervical, thoracic and sacral regions.
  • Clinodactyly
    Clinodactyly /ˈklaɪnˌoʊdæktɪli/ (from the Ancient Greek κλίνειν klínein meaning "to bend" and δάκτυλος dáktulos meaning "digit") is a medical term describing the curvature of a digit (a finger or toe) in the plane of the palm, most commonly the fifth finger (the "little finger") towards the adjacent fourth finger (the "ring finger").
  • List of human positions
    Human positions refer to the different physical configurations that the human body can take.
  • Arthroscopy
    Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.
  • Lordosis
    The term lordosis refers to the normal inward lordotic curvature of the lumbar and cervical regions of the spine.
  • Osteoarthritis
    Osteoarthritis (OA) is a type of joint disease that results from breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone.
  • Osteophyte
    Osteophytes, commonly referred to as bone spurs are bony projections that form along joint margins.
  • Scoliosis
    Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine has a sideways curve.
  • Rotator cuff
    In anatomy, the rotator cuff (sometimes incorrectly called a "rotator cup", "rotor cuff", or "rotary cup") is a group of muscles and their tendons that act to stabilize the shoulder.
  • Distraction osteogenesis
    Distraction osteogenesis is a procedure that uses the healing process that happens between surgically osteotomized bone segments and is also an important aspect of reconstructive surgery.
  • Plantar fasciitis
    Plantar fasciitis is a disorder that results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot.
  • Osseointegration
    Osseointegration derives from the Greek osteon, bone, and the Latin integrare, to make whole.
  • Walking stick
    A walking stick is a device used by many people to facilitate walking, for fashion, or for defensive reasons.
  • Spondylolysis
    Spondylolysis (spon-dee-low-lye-sis) is defined as a defect or stress fracture in the pars interarticularis of the vertebral arch.
  • Neutral spine
    A neutral spine or good posture refers to the "three natural curves [that] are present in a healthy spine.
  • Hip dysplasia
    Hip dysplasia, developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) or congenital dysplasia of the hip (CDH) is a congenital or developmental deformation or misalignment of the hip joint.
  • Bone resorption
    Bone resorption is resorption of bone tissue, that is, the process by which osteoclasts break down the tissue in bones and release the minerals, resulting in a transfer of calcium from bone tissue to the blood.
  • Outline of trauma & orthopedics
    The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to trauma & orthopaedics: Orthopedic surgery – branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system.
  • Index of trauma & orthopaedics articles
    Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system.
  • Spastic cerebral palsy
    Spastic cerebral palsy, sometimes also termed bilateral spasticity, is the type of cerebral palsy wherein spasticity (also known in some versions of colloquial English as "muscle tightness") is either the dominant or exclusive impairment present.
