OBJECTIVES To verify the relationship between the angle of thoracic kyphosis, bone mineral density, and postural control in elderly women. METHODS Through a cross-sectional study, 95 elderly participants were subdivided into four groups according to the thoracic kyphosis angle (obtained by the flexicurve method) and to bone densitometry results. On the force platform and through the dynamic test, stabilometric data were obtained. For statistical analysis, we assessed the performance of each… CONTINUE READING
