Purpose: Thoracic and lumber flatback has been assumed to be the triggerring factor for idiopathic scoliosis. It is belived that rotation and lateral deviation are secondary patterns of deformity in the development of idiopathic scoliosis, and it should be possible to improve scoliosis by forces in sagittal plane. It is suggested that Physio-logic (R) exercises stabilize the spine posture and correct scoliosis in 3-D. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of symmetric mobilization exercise which was defined in Physio-logic (R) exercises on spine flexibility and angle of trunk rotation.
