Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of balancing exercises based on feel-deep receiver on dynamic balance in adolescent scoliosis patients.
Methods: Scoliosis patients were identified using special tests such as Adams test. The cases of study were randomly divided into two experimental (n=12) and control (n=12) groups. Average angle of Cobb and mean age, mean height and mean weight in two groups were measured. Experimental group received three sessions a week for three months and exercised for 80 minutes. The data were analyzed using statistical tests and SPSS18 software. Significant level of results considered as P < 0/05.

Results: Results of this study showed that there is significant difference in Cobb angle in the experimental group before and after treatment (p<0.01). Patients had a significant improvement in balance function. But there was not significant difference between Cobb angle and balance in scoilosis patients. Exercise also leads to decreased postural deviations and fluctuations of 12± 2.04 to 9±3.38 degrees.

Conclusions: Results of this study showed that exercises based on balancing movements reduced Cobb angle and raised balance in adolescent scoliosis patients.
