Introduction: The idiopathic scoliosis is a spinal deformity developed in three-dimensions that if untreated, can worsened to back pain, impaired vital capacity and psychosocial disturbances. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of a course of corrective exercises on postural and biomechanical parameters in patients with idiopathic scoliosis.
Materials and Methods: 25 patient with idiopathic scoliosis participated for 10 weeks (three sessions per week) in the program of corrective exercises. In order to measuring the angle of scoliosis and the relative difference between inferior angle of the scapula and shoulders, posterior view photogrammetric method was used.  Shapiro test was used to determine the normal distribution of data and T-Test to analyze between the results of before and after the test.
Results: The results showed a significant decrease in the angle of lateral curvature of the spine (P=0.000), the markedly differences between the inferior angle of the scapula (P=0.001) and shoulders (P=0.035) after participation in the program of corrective exercises.
Conclusion: Proper corrective exercises can be effective in reducing the angle of lateral curvature of the spine and the inferior angle of the scapula and shoulders in patients with idiopathic scoliosis.
