TY PES OF SPINAL JOINT DYSFUNCTION According to the first two of Fryette's concepts, two different types of dysfunctions may occur in the spine. Type I (neutral) dysfunctions occur when three or more segments are held in a curve and rotated opposite of the concavity or side-bent position. The dysfunction often occurs as an adaptive response when neutral mechanics are operative, and it is maintained by restrictors that are muItisegmentaI. This dysfunction is maximally evi­ dent in the neutral position and improves, but does not resolve, with either flexion or extension of the spine through this region.

He found, however, that the column of posterior elements always rotated toward the same side as the side bending. Lovett further recorded his observation that, in extension, the facets were in close apposition but that this did not occur in flexion. He concluded that, in extension, the facets "con- LEFT FACET CLOSES RIGHT FACET OPENS B F I G U RE 2-1 7 (A) Superior vertebra side bends to the right in relation to the inferior vertebra as a combination of right lateral rotation and translation to the right.

It is important to recognize that the articular pillars are some distance in front of and lateral to the spinous processes.
