In 1994 compared healthy adult volunteers with patients reporting low back pain, noting a wide but largely similar range of values for lordosis ad kyphosis in healthy patients, as well as similar C7 plumbline values, between the two groups [11]. However, they noted a critical proximal shift in segmental lordosis and a decrease in sacral inclination in back pain patients, representing possible compensatory mechanisms for any loss of lordosis at the lower lumbar levels in these patients. An emphasis on sagittal alignment led to widespread use of the sagittal vertical axis (SVA), determined by measuring the AP translation relative to S1 of a cephalad vertebrae.
