Kyphosis patients’ chiropractic program proposal and its impact on physical fitness components

Dr.ir. Amar Mothna Jamil, Dr.ir. Moshtaq Abed-Alrida Mashi, Dr.ir. Ali Bdewi Tabor.


This research consists of five chapters. In the first chapter, researchers addressed thoracic vertebrae deformities caused by false daily habits (ex. Prolonged bad posture). They tried to eliminate or minimize the resultant negative impacts via therapeutic techniques and exercise; and tried to prevent the worsening of the condition that leads to deformities and hence the necessity of surgical intervention.
This study aims at the preparation of a rehabilitation chiropractic program and testing its impact on some physical fitness components.
In the second chapter, researchers address the concept of deformity, spinal cord autopsy, and spine curve degree; in addition to the causes and the impact of physical exercise in avoiding deformities.
The experimental approach was followed in this research with one focus group. Suitable tests were picked and pretests were performed on 10 patients then they were given the rehabilitation program. The first phase lasted 3 weeks; 4 units per week. This phase consisted of therapeutic techniques such as electrical stimulation, infrared radiation, and massage.
The second phase lasted 6 weeks; 4 units per week, and at the end, post tests were performed.
The results were processed using proper statistical tools and showed that the program reduced kyphosis in targeted patients and improved physical fitness components.
Researchers concluded the following:
The application of the prepared program showed significant improvements in the chiropractic treatment of targeted patients.
The prepared program showed positive impacts in terms of some physical components (arm muscles endurance, Squat (legs), speed, agility, and balance)

Key words: chiropractic program, physical fitness, kyphosis
