Palpation for the diagnosis of spine alignment is widely practiced by chiropractic practitioners and oriental medicine doctors. In this process, positions of vertebral spinous processes are felt with the fingers of a practitioner. Diagnosis by palpation does not yield objective data and is prone to errors. In this work, a method of spine scan is proposed based on dermal force-displacement measurements in the vicinity of spinous processes. The result of spine scan is in good agreement with diagnostic images of X-ray.
