Schober test

Schober test

(shō'bĕr),
a measure of lumbar spine motion in which parallel horizontal lines are drawn 10 cm above and 5 cm below the lumbosacral junction in the erect subject; with maximum forward flexion, the distance between the lines increases at least 5 cm in normal patients but far less in patients with ankylosing spondylitis.

Mobility of the lumbar spine was assessed based on a modified Schober test, fingertip-to-floor distance and lateral flexion of the lumbar spine.
Joint assessments used Peripheral Cervical Thoracic 68/66 count Occiput-to-wall distance Chest expansion Tragus-to-wall distance Goniometric assessment Lumbar Sacroiliac Modified Schober test Patrick's FABER test Fingertip-to-floor Anterior posterior pelvic distance pressure Lateral flexion Lateral pelvic compression Direct pressure over the sacroiliac joints Gaenslen's test Table 2.
Anthropometric parameters (hand-ground distance, occiput-wall distance, Schober test, chest expansion) and disease activity indices Bath AS disease activity index (BASDAI), Bath AS functional index (BASFI) were evaluated.
On physical examination he had a normal Schober test and chest expansion.
For the Schober Test, marks were made on the skin 5 cm above and below the L5-S1 junction as the participants stood in a neutral position.
01) on the Schober Test and by 15 deg (95% CI 5 to 25, p < 0.
4) physical examination and anthropometric measurements (chest expansion, Schober test, hand-to-floor distance, occiput-to-wall distance); (5) disease activity parameters (Bath AS disease activity index [BASDAI], Bath AS functional index [BASFI]); and (6) drug usage.
Her tragus-wall distance was 19 cm, occiput-wall distance was 6 cm and chin-manubriosternal distance was 3 cm while lumbarlaterally flexion were 6, 5 cm and the modified Schober test was 1,5 cm.
