Spinal Alignment Changes from Sitting to Standing

The Study: Radiographic Assessment of Spinopelvic Sagittal Alignment from Sitting to Standing Position

In modern society, most office workers spend their time indoors, sitting on a chair. Elderly persons also spend a lot of time sitting due to weakness of locomotive function.

The lumbar lordosis is decreased when sitting. It then decreases further as the patient starts to stand up. Then the lordosis increases as the patient stands up and is in full lordosis once the patient is standing fully erect.
