BAQUERO SASTRE, Germán Augusto. Characterization of the Muscle Flexibility and its Ralation with Lumbo-pelvic Postural Alterations. Rev. Cient. Gen. José María Córdova [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.10, pp.319-330. ISSN 1900-6586.

Muscle flexibility is an important property for achieving a state of biomechanical balance that provides a more adequate performance of the movement, This is not only important for improving musculoskeletal conditions of work, but also the joint stability and postural alignment, especially in the lumbo-pelvic (lower back) region, through which the state of muscle flexibility is a relevant factor in preventing functional and structural changes in lumbopelvic biomechanics causing the emergence of diseases that limit performance in endurance exercise in people, with significant and permanent disability, along with health-care and work impairment costs.

Keywords : Muscle flexibility; lumbo-pelvic postural alterations; lumbar postural problems; posture; lumbar posture.
