OBJECTIVE This study examines the influence of posture on the range of axial rotation of the thorax and the range and direction of the coupled lateral flexion. METHODS The ranges of mid thoracic axial rotation and coupled lateral flexion were measured in 52 asymptomatic subjects (aged 18-43 years) using an optical motion analysis system. To examine the influence of posture on primary and coupled motion, we initiated axial rotation from a neutral sitting posture and from end-range thoracic… CONTINUE READING
