The aim of this study was to evaluate the stability and intra-tester reliability of an innovative approach to measure active thoracic spine axial rotation. Ultrasound imaging of a thoracic vertebra in conjunction with Polhemus motion analysis of the transducer was used to measure axial thoracic spine rotation in a functional position. The range of motion in a convenience sample of asymptomatic subjects (n=24) was calculated across ten repetitions of a single trial to evaluate stability. The… CONTINUE READING
