STUDY DESIGN This study investigated the interrelationship between total lumbosacral flexion and true lumbar flexion in a population of chronic low back pain sufferers, measured with a dual inclinometer technique. Correlations with self-reported disability also were assessed. Self-reported disability was measured with the Million Visual Analog Scale. OBJECTIVES To assess whether total lumbosacral flexion could be substituted for true lumbar flexion in the clinical evaluation of trunk mobility… CONTINUE READING
