Axial Rotation

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Axial rotation is the turning of Earth on its axis and, by extension, the spinning of any heavenly body on its axis. It is Earth’s daily rotation that is responsible for the apparent motion of the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars across the sky.

The effect was explained as follows: these are the moments when Earth axial rotation changes its sign relatively its circumsolar rotation: since 6 am till 6 pm ("the day time") these rotations have opposite directions, and 6 pm till 6 am they are co-directed.
We observed increasing trunk flexion, right lateral rotation, and right axial rotation over the course of the lift phase until near the end, at which time the trunk started to extend back toward an upright position prior to landing (Figure 5).
7) Under an axial compressive load, the asymmetry of the facets results in axial rotation toward the more coronally orientated facet, imparting torsional stresses in the outer ring of the intervertebral disc, contributing to disc injury and deterioration.
12] It is generally accepted that increased axial rotation instability of the upper cervical spine can cause symptoms such as severe occipital headache and pain and tenderness in the adjoining neck muscles.
Future research plans are to expand the movements to include lateral bending and coupled axial rotation.
This flow splitting combines with axial rotation of the stream, thus ensuring the continuous transfer of material back and forth between the wall and the center of the stream.
A "palindrome effect" is conditioned by dependence of a histogram shape from correlation of Earth motion directions: at its axial rotation and circumsolar movement.
A high correlation exists between hip motion and total axial rotation, thus suggesting that improving flexibility of the hips would alleviate pain and its recurrent episodes [7].
It is usually considered as a three dimensional deformity, because axial rotation will always accompany the lateral curvature.
Mean cervical axial rotation decreased from 71 degrees to 24 degrees when participants were wearing the collar and not driving and from 50 degrees to 27 degrees while behind the wheel.
0 improves axial rotation strength, flexibility and power.
Avoiding shear forces on the spinal cord is instrumental in preserving neurological function; therefore, the apparent center of axial rotation is likely somewhere near the cord running through the spinal canal.
