May 27, 2015

Two newly developed physical examination tests were found to effectively detect lumbar spondylolisthesis and lumbar instability and were easily performed in an outpatient setting, according to researchers.

A total of 96 patients were evaluated for lumbar spondylolisthesis using the low midline sill sign test and 73 patients were evaluated for lumbar instability using the interspinous gap change test during lumbar flexion-extension motion. All patients presented with initial complaints of low back pain or lumbar radicular pain.
