Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To elucidate baseline values of various spinopelvic parameters in healthy adults in standing position and to compare various spinopelvic parameters of Delhi State population with European population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective Cross-sectional study was conducted in Central Institute of Orthopaedics, VMMC Safdarjung Hospital New Delhi with Sample size of 100 in healthy adults between 20 to 45 years of age. Parameters calculated were Sagittal vertical axis (SVA), Cervical lordosis, Thoracic kyphosis (TK), Lumbar lordosis (LL), Pelvic Tilt (PT), Pelvic Incidence (PI), Sacral slope (SS). RESULTS: Mean values of spinopelvic parameters in present study for SVA, LL, TK, PT, PI, SS are 1.08 cm, 42.17, 32.86, 12.65, 50.44 and 37.85 respectively. CONCLUSION: On comparison with European population LL and TK are more in European population as compared with Indian population but no significant difference between PT, PI and SS values.
