Values of thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis in adolescents from Czestochowa
Scoliosis volume 4, Article number: O53 (2009)
Knowledge of the normal value of sagittal curves of spine is essential during the assessment of the posture of the body.
Aim of the study
The goal of the study is to outline normal values of thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis in adolescents.
One thousand one hundred and fifty six adolescents (622 M and 534 F) aged 11–14 years from Czestochowa.
The measurement of curves in the sagittal plane were performed during clinical analysis of the body posture using plurimeter-V by Rippstein.
See Table 1.
The applied method of the measurement is simple and useful in clinical practice.
