Spinal sarcopenia is receiving renewed attention as a cause of spinal sagittal imbalance. However, the relationships between spinal sarcopenia and spinal sagittal balance (SSB) have not been thoroughly investigated. We evaluated the relationships between SSB parameters and sarcopenic indices with lumbar paraspinal muscle (LPM) quantity and strength in healthy older adults.

Twenty-four healthy community-dwelling older women were enrolled. Demographic variables, conventional sarcopenic indices, isometric back muscle strength, and SSB parameters, as well as results of functional examinations and lumbar spine computed tomography scan with LPM cross-sectional area (CSA) and density assessments, were examined. The independent effect on the sum of the total LPM CSA was determined using multivariable regression analysis adjusted for age, appendicular skeletal muscle mass, gait speed, handgrip strength, back extensor strength, and pelvic tilt (PT) angle.

PT angle was significantly correlated with the sum of the total LPM CSA and mean LPM density (r=-0.502, p=0.015 and r=0.504, p=0.014, respectively). Furthermore, PT angle was an independent factor for the sum of the total LPM CSA (β=-0.610, p=0.021) in the multivariate regression models (R2=0.320).

Our data suggest that PT angle was significantly correlated with LPM CSA in healthy older women. To our knowledge, this is the first report to investigate the relationships of sarcopenic indices and spinal muscle degeneration with SSB.
