Abstract

INTRODUCTION
This study was performed to identify the effects of the Schroth method on 20 female college students who were diagnosed with Thoracic and Lumbar Curve of Scoliosis.
METHOD
These female students were divided into two groups, and each group had 10 female students of Thoracic Curve of Scoliosis and the Lumbar Curve of Scoliosis. We measured the body weight, BMI and the percentage of body fat using the Inbody 4.0 (Biospace Co, Korea). The Cobb’s Angle was measured with X-ray exposures (or other type of measure) (Dong Kang, Korea) and we measured the ratio of the percentage of the foot pressure while standing on both left and right foot using the Gait View (alFOOTs, Korea). The MFT V1.7 (My Fitness Trainer, U.S.A) was used to see the ability of balancing the body. When the p value was less than 0.05, the verification was considered significant.
RESULT
The result of the study was as follows: First, there was a significant difference of the Cobb’s angle in both groups before and after the Schroth Exercise for 12 weeks (p<0.001), but there was no significance with in time × group test (p=0.846). The result from the group of the Thoracic Curve of Scoliosis was more significant after the treatment on the Cobb’s angle. Second, there was a significant difference in foot pressure between pre- and post-Ex in time that 2 groups of Schroth Exercise for 12 weeks (p<0.001), but there was no significance with in time × group test (p=0.827). The result from the group of the Lumbar Curve of Scoliosis was more significant after the treatment on the Foot Pressure. Third, assessing Body balance between the ability of the body (front, back, left, right), depending on the time, showed that there were significant differences in both groups (p<0.001), however, there was no significant difference in group×time (p=0.603).
CONCLUSION
The results from both the Lumbar Curve of Scoliosis Group and the Thoracic Curve of Scoliosis Group showed that there were significant differences in the left and right balance after the treatment.
