Immediate Effects of the Downhill Treadmill Walking Exercise on Thoracic Angle and Thoracic Extensor Muscle Activity in Subjects With Thoracic Kyphosis
Physical Therapy Korea
In previous studies, changes in postural alignment were found when the slope was changed during walking. Downhill walking straightens the trunk by shifting the line of gravity backward. Objects: This study investigated the effect of the downhill treadmill walking exercise (DTWE) on thoracic angle and thoracic erector spinae (TES) activation in subjects with thoracic kyphosis. Methods: A total of 20 subjects with thoracic kyphosis were recruited for this study. All the subjects performed thedoi:10.12674/ptk.2019.26.2.001 fatcat:hmi6hcp52fbybpa4kcj7pvy2ti
