Prueba de inclinación hacia delante

La prueba de inclinación hacia adelante se utiliza muy a menudo en las escuelas y consultorios médicos para examinar a la persona en busca de escoliosis. Durante dicho examen, el niño se inclina hacia delante con los pies juntos y las rodillas extendidas, mientras descuelga los brazos. Cualquier desequilibrio en la caja torácica u otras deformidades a lo largo de la espalda podría ser un signo de escoliosis.
