Example text

Together with ligaments, the facet joints determine the direction and degree of displacement of the vertebrae one to another. Because of their intrinsic fiber orientation, the AF, the dorsal longitudinal, interspinal, and supraspinous ligaments contribute to kinematic control, while the ventral longitudinal ligament has a very important static function [38]. Further, the lumbar ligaments, together with their vertebral joints, behave like a gear system without a constant center of rotation. As an adaptive consequence, the thickness of the ventral and dorsal parts of the AF is distributed unequally, and rotation is limited by the facet joints in conjunction with the thicker ventral part of the AF.

Last, the German shepherd dog is predisposed to sacral osteochondrosis, which involves degeneration and fragmentation of the sacral end plate [62–64]. Besides aberrant nutritional supply to the IVD, the abnormal shape of the sacral end plate may cause aberrant mechanical loading of the IVD [62–64]. These specific factors in the German shepherd dog may cause aberrant loading of the IVD with consequent IVD degeneration and displacement. References 1. Adams MA, Hutton WC.
