Abstract

A simple method for measurement of spinal dorsolumbar lateral flexion is described. Measurements performed on 200 healthy 19-year-old men showed that normal lateral flexion was about 10% of body height. The method which requires only a measuring tape correlates well with that recorded by the more sophisticated inclinometer.
