Abstract: Background: Lower crossed syndrome is a musculoskeletal imbalance characterized by specific patterns of muscle weakness and tightness that crosses between the dorsal and the ventral sides of the body. This postural imbalance among young individuals can lead to Low Back Pain in future. Hence, this study aims to find out the prevalence of the lower crossed syndrome in young female college students of Medical Trust Institute of Medical Science, Ernakulam. Method: In the following study, 33 students were selected according to the inclusion criteria. Length of bilateral Iliopsoas muscle was measured by Modified Thomas test using Universal Goniometer. Length of spinal extensor muscle was checked by non-elastic measuring tape. Strength of abdominal muscle and bilateral Gluteus maximus muscle were evaluated according to MRC grading of manual muscle testing. Results: The study results showed that 9 out of 33 female volunteers have Lower Crossed Syndrome. Conclusion: The study concluded that 27.27% of young collegiate females have lower crossed syndrome. The rest of the participants were found to have weakness or tightness of atleast one of the muscle groups.
