Background: Providing the physical needs of students and their health is one of the most important health issues. According to recent research, there are common anomalies and physical deformities among students. The aim of this study was to evaluate postural abnormalities in primary girl students.
Methods: This was a descriptive cross-sectional study that was conducted on 201 primary girl students who were referred to the movement correction center in Ardabil during 2018-2019. After obtaining consent from the parents of the students, a checklist containing demographic information and evaluation of the postural abnormalities was completed for all students. Collected data were analyzed using the statistical method Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 24.
Results: The most common anomalies were uneven shoulder (83%) and the least common was flat back (0.5%). Other anomalies were lordosis, kyphosis, genu valgum, pes planus, hallux valgus, forward head posture, genu varum, scoliosis, and flat back, respectively.
Conclusion: In this study, uneven shoulder was the most common anomaly. Due to easier correction of anomalies at a younger age, corrective measures must be taken at this age. Also, by designing an evaluation program, training, and correction, we can provide suitable grounds for the prevention and even treatment of such abnormalities.

Key words: Postural abnormalities, students, uneven shoulder, Ardabil.
