Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of the physical rehabilitation exercise program on the vital capacity of 6- to 8-year-old children with scoliosis of degree I and II.

The experimental group participated in rehabilitation exercises, but the control group did not receive any special training. Rehabilitation exercises consisted of sixteen sessions in 8 weeks, each session lasting 60 minutes and in each session, the children's vital lung capacity was measured three times. Results: The results showed that the rate of increase in the vital lung capacity in the experimental group was significantly more than that in the control group (P
