Abstract

The curves of the spine have not been researched extensively with respect to occupation or sports. Evaluation of the spine is complex, Methods of measurement and evaluation based on measuring 4 points of the rachis (spine) developed by (Wolanski, 1957) and the recording of the profile by evaluating the 3 angles of function in the vertical (Minski, 1972; lwanowski, 1975) were indispensable steps in establishing the basis for more objective and precise methods and for identifying the importance of the spinal curves.
