The efficiency of corrective exercise interventions on thoracic hyper-kyphosis angle is already proved.
3R System has showed improvements after 12 weeks of guided corrective exercise and prevention in the collateral injuries on the lumbar spine by compressive forces.
In case of pathological kyphosis, different mechanical compensations may be activated. When the spine remains flexible, the hyperextension of the spine below or above compensates the kyphosis. When the spine is rigid, the only way is rotating backward the pelvis (retroversion).
Our Screening doesn’t need necesarely a radiography.
The gravity-dependent (analogue) inclinometer produces angles that are comparable to the modified Cobb angle obtained from radiographs, establishing its criterion validity as a safe clinical tool for measuring thoracic kyphosis.
