The possible association between pelvic obliquity and low-back pain is investigated in low-back pain patients and a control population. A precise method of erect posture radiography is used to carefully measure leg length inequality in these two groups. An age-related response of the postural scoliosis to shoe-raise is noted. The results of shoe-raise therapy with and without lumbosacral manipulation are compared, and preliminary results are reported.
