BACKGROUND Breast cancer treatment may be a cause of postural disorders. OBJECTIVE Assessment of the effects of various forms of physical activity on body posture in the sagittal plane in women post breast cancer treatment. STUDY GROUP Sixty women who had received breast cancer treatment. The study group was intentionally divided into three groups of 20(More)
Evidence is limited regarding the regional changes in spinal posture after self-correction. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether active self-correction improved standing and sitting spinal posture. Photogrammetry was used to assess regional spinal curvatures and vertical global spine orientation (GSO) in 42 asymptotic women aged 20-24 years.(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluation of body posture and strength of spinal muscles in children during their progressive ontogenesis is significant for the evaluation of their physical health condition and physical fitness. It is also a reference point in a process of control and medical care. PURPOSE The aim if this study was to evaluate correlation between the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess existing differences in the isokinetic trunk muscle strength in males and females aged between 10 and 11 years depending on body posture. METHODS The study included 145 children (67 males and 78 females) divided into 2 age groups: 10-year-old males (x¯ = 9.98 ± 2.34 years) and females (x¯ = 9.85 ± 2.94 years)(More)
OBJECTIVE Recurrent symptoms of low back pain and its transition to a chronic state are associated with specific motor strategies used by people to avoid pain. The aim of the study was to determine the impact of chronic pain intensity on sit-to-stand (STS) strategy in chronic low back pain (CLBP) patients with herniated disks. METHOD Vertical ground(More)
BACKGROUND Rett syndrome is a rare developmental disorder with a genetic background, and scoliosis is one of its many complications. The aim of the present study was to assess the structure of the torso in the frontal plane in RTT. It was assumed that asymmetry of the structure of the torso in the frontal plane would be smaller in girls who are able to(More)
OBJECTIVE Playing an instrument often requires a certain posture and asymmetric position that may affect the anteroposterior spinal curvatures and may lead to postural asymmetry. The aim of the study was to evaluate the spinal curvatures in the sagittal plane and the magnitude of asymmetries in the trunk in the frontal plane in a group of music students in(More)
