Changes in postural alignment, such as camptocormia, Pisa syndrome, and scoliosis can also pose additional mechanical limitation when patients with PD attempt to roll over [41].
PD patients commonly show the classic stooped appearance, with flexion of the hips and knees, and rounding of the shoulders, but an important subset of patients shows more severe postural deformities, including camptocormia, antecollis, Pisa syndrome, and scoliosis [91, 92].
sup][18] Pain due to camptocormia only shows middle improvement with STN or Gpi stimulation.
