Abstract

Background: Spinal column abnormalities can highly restrict motor movement in students with dyspraxia. The present study investigated the effect of regular corrective exercises on the spinal column of students with dyspraxia.

Materials and Methods: The present study is a quasi-experimental research. For the purposes of the study, spinal column abnormalities of a total of 150 girls and 220 boys were analyzed. The subjects then went through a 12-week period of corrective exercises. The students' spinal column abnormalities were re-examined to determine the effects of the exercise. The study employed SPSS-16 to analyze the data. Also, for the purposes of the study, statistical-descriptive methods, samples t-test and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were used to further analyze the data in detail.

Results: The results of the study indicated that students with dyspraxia constituted 6.16 % of the total sample. That is to say, dyspraxic girls and boys made up 5% and 7.3% of the sample, respectively. Moreover, 60% of the boys and 63.3% of the girls suffered from spinal column abnormalities. The results of the experiment indicated that corrective exercises can reduce spinal column abnormalities in school students.

Conclusion: The results of the experiment indicated that corrective exercises can reduce spinal column abnormalities in school students.
