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 major axial rotation in the region is between C1 and C2, which contributes to 40% to 50% of the axial rotation of the entire cervical spine and occiput.
1] The term cecal volvulus is misleading as this process is often not limited to the cecum alone but usually consists of an axial rotation of the terminal ileum, cecum, and ascending colon, with concomitant twisting of the associated mesentery.
Lindsay and Horton (55) examined isokinetic axial rotation strength and endurance in elite golfers with and without LBP as well as healthy age-matched controls who did not golf.
1995) showed that healthy subjects and patients both were stronger in trunk lateral flexion compared with axial rotation, but patients demonstrated just 45%-55% peak isometric torques of asymptomatic controls.
37) Graded increases in the muscle's modeled activity decreases the intersegmental neutral zone (range: 33%-40%) during flexion, extension, and axial rotation but not lateral bending, and decreases intersegmental range of motion (range: 7-27%) during extension and axial rotation but not flexion or lateral bending.
In Chapter Four, he considers the application of the categories of modality to nature through an analysis of the difference between rectilinear and orbital motions, on the one hand, and axial rotation on the other.
Therefore, changes of histogram shapes at measurements of light flow fluctuation are again related with axial rotation of the Earth.
We studied the short--term effects of axial rotation exercises.
The alar ligaments are in number of two and its main function is to limit the axial rotation, the right alar ligament limits left rotation and vice versa (5,6,8,10).
The right bit-skirt design also helps: As the bit cuts through a joint surface, an uneven bit face loading condition arises; resulting in bit and drill string axial rotation that is proportional to bit impact force imbalance.
Rathonyi and coworkers (17) similarly demonstrated that cage fixation alone provides good stability in flexion and lateral bending, but that translaminar fixation improves stabilization, particularly in extension and axial rotation.
