Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate of correlation between anthropometric characteristics and scoliosis deformity of male students.

Methodology: The scoliosis was studied in 28 male students with a vertical line with the subjects standing in a relaxed position. Then each subject was tested for various anthropometric measurements, a set of anthropometric measurements, which included height, body weight, body composition and muscle mass and etc. Statistical analysis was performed with use of SPSS statistical software. Pearson correlation coefficient, with significance levels of 0.05, was performed to assess correlation between variables.

Results: Results didn’t show any significant correlation (P > 0.05) between scoliosis and anthropometric characteristics.

Conclusion: Scoliosis didn’t show any significant correlation with anthropometric characteristics, however further studies are needed to prove this.
