in the handlebar drops position was associated with the sitting forward lean test (p=0.04; CI: 16.20-19.68), while the lumbosacral angle and curvature were consistently related to sitting forward lean test.
We suggest using WI in association with Cobb's method of LLA in evaluating lumbar curvature
. Further studies using MRI are recommended to confirm presence of any association of lordosis with ethnicity and physical activities.
However, when these athletes were in their canoes, the posture was characterized by reduced thoracic and lumbar curvatures
. Muyor et al.
At the initiation of the lift both the upper erector spinae and lumbar erector spinae activation peak and there is minimal change in lumbar curvature
The lumbar curvature
and the capability of the spine to absorb force efficiently are restored when the knees fall below the hips in the seated position.
short, teenage girl with a convex right lumbar curvature
Results: Changes in total lumbar curvature
and lumbar spine height for this subject in the unloaded and loaded conditions are displayed in Figure 1.
Elise adjusts Graham, who has a right thoracic left lumbar curvature
of the spine.
Consequently, there is a greater lumbar curvature
, resulting in a higher percentage of women suffering from chronic backache compared to men.
When adequate lumbar curvature
is lacking, pelvic organs are predisposed to prolapse.
