Question

I have a rating for Scheuermann's Kyphosis, which is basically curvature of my spine. My total ROM is very close to the next highest rating. I have a C-shapped spine, meaning I already lean forward xyz degrees. So of course, it already looks like my Flexion when I bend forward is more than it really is, because of my C-shapped spine. My question is this. How does one get around the Total ROM testing, when the shape of one's back is already curved forward? Has anyone else had experience with alternative measurements in the ROM test? Below is similar to how my current curvature looks, which increases how my forward flexion looks on the goniometer. Basically my back is screwing me out of a higher rating. LOL Thanks in advance...

P.S. No physicians have made any reference to already having a forward stance, so that may be an approach?
