Ferguson’s technique was employed for calculation of LSA. Result: In this study, there was variation of LSA ranges from 130 to 710 with a 95% confidence interval of 32.11-34.410. A t-test was carried out to compare male and female angle and statistically, there was no significant difference between the male and female gender (P value: 0.6407). Conclusion: Results of the present study shows variability which further strengthen the fact that normal variation in LSA differs among different region and races; hence the results will be a useful tool to health care providers for treating different spinal disorders of people living in Rivers state.
