We studied three easily performed objective techniques for determining trunk flexibility (the common "fingertip-to-floor" test, the modified Schober and Moll tests, and the Loebl inclinometer method) and(More)

This "scanning" technique is widely used to expeditiously assess muscle activity in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal(More)
