Adams Forward Bend Test
|Adams Forward Bend Test|
|Purpose||Diagnosis of scoliosis|
The Adams Forward Bend Test is used in many situations to diagnose scoliosis, however it is not a primary source for a diagnosis. This test is often used at schools and doctors offices to check for scoliosis. The patient bends forward, as if they are diving. If the patient has scoliosis, their back often has a prominent line where the spine is, and one side is higher than the other. A patient's back is completely straight if they do not have scoliosis.
