What is a "step" in the spine?

What does it mean to have a "step" in the spine? I'm doing a case study on bird rehabilitation and she had a "step" in her spine. Here is the context I'm getting this from : "...he thought he saw a "step" in the spine, though the spinal cord appeared to be intact."

Thank you.

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
