This study attempted to investigate the effect of 12 weeks' Complex-excercise program which are not surgical procedures on adolescent scoliosis. The total of 34 middle School girls students subjects, with scoliosis and over 10° of cobb's angle, residing in Gwang-ju H hospital scoliosis center.
Subjects were tested twice times; before and after the complex-excercise program. The complex-excercise program was consisted of 3 times per week, 60 minutes in each session and lasted 12 weeks. Significance level was established at ?=.05.
After the 12 weeks' spine-excercise program, the cobb's angle and the change of Moire Topography was significance decreased(p=.000). In the change of Moire Topography, the Moire-angle and the number of contour lines have been a meaningful difference among all groups except SMC(Right)(p=.000).
On the results above, it was found that the 12 weeks' complex-excercise program including the stretching, muscle strength exercise has shown effect on cobb's angle and Moire Topography, and it has helped the scoliosis students to improve Flexibility, muscle strength around the spine and body balance.
