Postural control during prolonged standing in persons with chronic low back pain.
Evidence-based guidelines for the chiropractic treatment of adults with neck pain.
Repositioning accuracy and movement parameters in low back pain subjects and healthy control subjects
Chronic LBP patients, when given a sufficient learning period, were able to reproduce trunk position with a spatial accuracy similar to control subjects, although some LBP subjects showed modifications of movement time, peak velocity and acceleration parameters.

The results of this study suggest that the presence of fatigue of the ES muscles modifies the flexion relaxation phenomenon, and superficial back muscle fatigue seems to induce a shift in load-sharing towards passive stabilizing structures.
Three dimensional evaluation of posture in standing with the PosturePrint: an intra- and inter-examiner reliability study
For the PosturePrint® system, the combined inter-ex examiner and intra-examiner correlation coefficients were in the good and excellent ranges and the posture digitizer is reliable for clinical use.
Kinematic and electromyographic parameters of the cervical flexion-relaxation phenomenon: the effect of trunk positioning.

A significant linear trend for increasing sagittal plane postural translations of the head, thorax, pelvis, and knee was found as children age from 4 years to 12 years, providing preliminary normative data for the alignment of a child's sagittal Plane posture.

The results strongly suggest that, following repeated trunk linear accelerations of a constant magnitude, the nervous system prefers to minimize muscle stress instead of adopting a bracing strategy.
