ABSTRACT

Objectives : Tortipelvis subluxation causes abnormal spinal curvature. To investigate the relationship in Ferguson's angle, lumbar intervertebral disc(IVD) angle and lumbar lordotic angle in low back pain patients with acute lateral tortipelvis were discussed. Methods : The subject of this study consisted of 13 patients who were diagnosed as acute lateral tortipelvis 4th lumbar by X-ray and 21 patients who were diagnosed as none tortipelvis. We investigated the Ferguson's angle, IVD angle, lumbar lordotic angle on X-ray film. Results and Conclusions : 1. In acute lateral tortipelvis 4th lumbar group, Ferguson's angle was bigger than none tortipelvis group(p>0.05). 2. In acute lateral tortipelvis 4th lumbar group, L4-5 IVD angle was significantly lower than none tortipelvis group(p<0.05). Also, this was smaller than the criteria of Barge's IVD angle. 3. In acute lateral tortipelvis 4th lumbar group, lumbar lordotic angle was bigger than none tortipelvis group(p>0.05). Also, this was bigger than the criteria of Barge's lumbar lordotic angle.
