Upper-crossed syndrome (UCS) is one of the most common disorders caused by muscle imbalance of the upper quadrant of the body, which is associated with 45-65% of shoulder pain. This study has been conducted to investigate the effect of corrective exercises focused on chain reactions, on scapular position, proprioception and shoulder functional stability of female students with upper-crossed syndrome (UCS). 30 female students between 14 and 18 years of age in Urmia city who had the mentioned disorder were selected using the purposive sampling method and were randomly divided into two experimental groups (15 people) and control (15 people). A tape measure was used to evaluate the distance between the median of the sternum to the coracoid ridge and the posterior-lateral distance of the acromion to the thoracic vertebra (scapular position), the Layton flexometer to measure proprioception, the Y Balance Test to evaluate the function of the upper limb, and the goniometer, tape measure and flexible ruler, respectively were used to measure head and shoulder forward angle and kyphosis (upper-crossed syndrome). Corrective exercises were also used based on the chain reaction theory. Independent and dependent t-tests were used to compare inter-group and intra-group means, respectively. According to the results of the present study, corrective exercises have a significant effect on scapular position, proprioception and shoulder functional stability of female students with UCS, so corrective exercises focused on chain reaction can probably be effective on the variables expressed in students with UCS
