Recognition of deformities and corrective exercise is a branch of physical education which intends to emend and treat various muscular weaknesses and deformities using proper and accurate corrective exercise and sports scientific principles.The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of regular corrective exercise on skeletal deformities such as scoliosis, shoulders dropping, flat foot and bow leg in secondary school male students of Khorramabad city as the statistical population. Materials and Methods: 160 girls in khorramabad city, aged 12-14 years, participated in this study. The subjects were examined twice before and after 24 sessions of corrective exercise. Deformities were measured by grid plane, plumb line and other relevant tests. The gathered data were analyzed by descriptive statistical methods including: frequency, percentage and graphs. Results: In 12 years old sbjects the degree of shoulders dropping, flat foot and bow leg in post- test were lower than pre-test and differences were significant (F=7.96, P<0.001& F=100.1, P<0.001 & F=27.63, P<0.001), but scoliosis was not significant (F=3.32 , P>0.001). The differences between pre and post measurments of shoulders dropping, flat foot and bow leg in 13 years old cases were significant (F= 100.1, P<0.001 & F=27.63, P<0.001 F=7.96, P<0.001),but for scoliosis, the differences were not significant (F=3.32 & P>0.001). Finally in 14 years old subjects for shoulders dropping, flat foot and bow leg, differences between pre and post- test were significant (F=7.96, P<0.001 & F= 100.1, P<0.001& F=27.63, P<0.001) but scoliosis were not significant(F=3.32 , P>0.001). Conclusion: The findings of this study emphasize the reliable, accurate, feasible, and easy methods for decreasing abnormalities. Furthermore, it showed that the corrective exercise programs, can reduce the abnormalities in oldness.
