Abstract

Objectives This study analyzed the correlation between body parameters measured using X-ray and Chuna posture analysis system to determine their clinical value in diagnosing and evaluating skeletomuscular diseases. Methods X-ray and Chuna posture analysis system were performed for 105 patients to measure physical characteristics such as Interacromial angle, Pelvic obliquity angle, Structural leg length discrepancy (SLLD), Midpatella-midtalus angle (MMA) and Q-angle, Anterior head translation (AHT), Anterior superior iliac spine to posterior superior iliac spine angle (ASIS-PSIS angle), Interscapular angle, Scoliotic angle and Cobb's angle. Statistical analysis using statistical analysis techniques and Pearson correlation coefficients was performed to assess the body parameters obtained by X-ray and Chuna posture analysis system. Results Significant correlations were observed between the values for Interacromial angle, Pelvic obliquity angle, SLLD, MMA and Q-angle, AHT, ASIS-PSIS angle, Interscapular angle, Scoliotic angle and Cobb's angle obtained by X-ray and Chuna posture analysis system. Significant correlations were also observed between right MMA and left Q-angle as well as between left MMA and right Q-angle. Conclusions Chuna posture analysis system can be used instead of X-ray measure body parameters and perform posture analysis in clinical practice. This study's findings are expected to serve as a basis for further research on the clinical application of Chuna posture analysis system.
