  Title Straight Back Syndrome: Positive response to spinal manipulation and adjunctive therapy - A case report
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2013 Jun;57(2):143-149
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Straight Back Syndrome (SBS) has been recognized for over 50 years. Not to be confused with flat back syndrome in the lumbar spine, SBS patients present with an obvious loss of the thoracic kyphosis accompanied by apparent heart symptoms. The main purpose of this article is to describe a patient diagnosed with SBS, whose symptoms were successfully managed using spinal manipulative therapy as well as ancillary modalities. The use of diagnostic and laboratory tests are essential to differentially diagnose cardiac disease from SBS. Genesis and incidence of this condition is also discussed as well as roentgenometric analysis. A suggested diagnostic algorithm is presented as well.

Le syndrome du dos droit (SBS) est reconnu depuis plus de 50 ans. À ne pas confondre avec le syndrome du dos plat de la partie lombaire de la colonne vertébrale, les patients souffrant du SBS présentent une importante diminution de la cyphose dorsale accompagnée de symptômes cardiaques apparents. L’objectif principal de cet article est de décrire le diagnostic d’un patient qui souffre du SBS, et dont les symptômes ont été repérés avec succès grâce à la manipulation vertébrale ainsi que des moyens auxiliaires. L’utilisation d’un diagnostic et de tests en laboratoire sont essentiels pour différencier un diagnostic de maladie cardiaque d’un diagnostic de SBS. L’origine et l’incidence de cette maladie sont également discutées, ainsi que l’analyse radiologique chiropratique. Une proposition d’algorithme de diagnostic est également présentée.
