Spondyloarthropathy: Schöber Test, Spine
The Schöber test is most commonly used in assessing spondylarthropathy, the classic form of which is Ankylosing Spondylitis. With the patient standing in the erect position, the skin is marked with a pen at the lumbosacral joint line. The physiotherapist measures down five centimeters and places another mark, then measures 10 centimeters up from the lumbosacral joint and makes a third mark. This slide shows the physiotherapist making the marks over the lumbosacral spine.
