Abstract

Background: Postural anomalies refer to the adverse changing which deforms the skeletal structure and natural height, these anomalies appear due to the environmental reasons, improper muscular function and physical movements and its recovery depends on removing the related factors Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the frequency of postural anomalies in soldiers and the effect of military training courses and present the corrective plans. Materials and Methods: In this cross sectional study that was performed in October 2011, fifty new coming soldiers from training center of military force of Sanandaj were selected randomly and their postural anomalies were evaluated two months before and after the military training courses, using the Ridko form and cross board. The obtained scores were analyzed using the descriptive statistics and t-test. Results: Overall, the round back anomalies were in the worst condition before the military training with the mean score of 5.6 and the two- month training course had a positive effect on the recovery of the round back anomalies and made other kinds of postural anomalies worse. Anomalies like uneven shoulder, neck flexion, round back and lordosis in soldiers were compared before and after the military training period and the results were its statistically significant (P = 0.000, P = 0.021, P = 0.000, P = 0.000). Conclusions: The military training course has a positive effect on the recovery of the postural anomalies and can lead to other anomalies, thus, we should prevent this condition by changing the physical activity plans and making the soldiers aware of the physical fitness. Keywords: Postural; Abnormalities; Military Personnel; Military Training Course; Corrective Plans
