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.
Clinical disease variables included duration of morning stiffness (in minutes), degree of spinal pain at night (as represented on a 100-mm visual-analogue scale, with 0 mm indicating the absence of pain and 100 mm the most severe pain), Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index, (16) Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Functional Index (BASFI), (17) physician's and patient's global assessment of disease activity, Schober test (cm), chest expansion (cm), and mean occiput-to-wall measurement (cm).
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.
