It is mainly due to restriction which is related to the severity of scoliosis (Cobb's angle), the location of the curve, and the loss of normal thoracic kyphosis
In the NTLJDK group, LL was correlated with thoracic kyphosis
(TK; r = −0.
Consequently, AS patients may end up having flattened lumbar lordosis and advanced thoracic kyphosis
Radiographs of this patient showed a flattened thoracic kyphosis
and a congenital block vertebrae at C2-3.
On physical examination, she had antalgic gait, increased thoracic kyphosis
and tenderness to percussion over the thoracolumbar region.
1)] was administered in the next consecutive patient (a 58-year-old woman undergoing thoracic kyphosis
Those who developed a significant increase in back extensor strength had a significant decrease in thoracic kyphosis
(dowager's hump), while those who did not get stronger actually had a slight increase in kyphosis.
Nine players were observed to have slight thoracic kyphosis
and four athletes displayed slight scoliosis.
003) between the depth of thoracic kyphosis
in both positions assumed by the subjects.
The accepted ranges for normal thoracic kyphosis
and lumbar lordosis have been reported between 20 to 50 degrees and31 to 79 degrees (from L1 to S1), respectively (34).
Lateral radiographs and CT scan confirmed a correction of the thoracic kyphosis
to 48[degrees] (36% correction).
Thereafter, without removing the device from the back, it was reseted and transferred to the spinous processes between Th1 and Th3 and the value of the thoracic kyphosis
has been read.
