BACKGROUND Seated postures are achieved with a moderate amount of lumbo-sacral flexion and sustained lumbo-sacral spine flexion has been associated with detrimental effects to the tissues surrounding a spinal joint. The purpose of this study was to determine if the lower intervertebral joints of the lumbo-sacral spine approach their end ranges of motion in seated postures. METHODS Static sagittal digital X-ray images of the lumbo-sacral region from L3 to the top of the sacrum were obtained in… CONTINUE READING
