Back ground: component of time on effectiveness and maintenance of corrective exercise has been always in the center of researchers’ attention. This study aimed to investigate the effect of 8 weeks corrective exercise on lumbar lordosis angle and the changes of the lumbar lordosis angle after a 4 months period in the hyper-lordotic pre pubertal and pubertal school girls .
Methods: The 64 lumbar lordotic schoolgirl (10 and 17 years old)were included that randomly divided into two groups: experimental (n=32) and control (n=32) The experimental groups performed corrective exercise for 8 weeks,3 session a week whereas control groups continued their usual physical and dietary activities. Lumbar lordosis angle values were measured before, after and then 4 months post training period by flexible ruler. Data were analyzed by using the variance analysis with repeated measure and α was 0.05.
Result: The result showed lumbar lordosis decreased in pre pubertal and pubertal girls (p>0.05). The means of lumbar lordosis increased in 2th post test(p>0.05) in experimental groups wheares There were no significant differences between means of lumbar lordosis in these time points in control group (P>0.05(
Conclusion: the result showed corrective exercise effect on lumbar lordosis angle in pre pubertal and pubertal students However, the effectiveness of training in pubertal has been much more effective than pre puberty .Also follow up findings showed the subject are required to participate in continual corrective exercise program and should not abandon training programe with desired result.
