Background and Objectives: Due to high prevalence of postural changes during aging, modern corrective methods can be used to improve posture abnormalities. Therefore, the present study aimed to examine the effect of  trainings based on modern corrective approaches on posture status and spine function of elderly women.
Materials and Methods: In this randomized clinical trial study, the statistical population included the elderly women aged 60 to 65 years with kyphosis more than 42 degrees in the city of Paveh in 2018, of which 30 were selected by convenience sampling and  randomly divided into two groups of experimental and control. The experimental group participated in the selected corrective training sessions, based on the principles of USA’s National Academy of Sports Medicine, for 6 weeks, 3 sessions a week and 60 minutes each session. The angle of kyphosis and function of spine were measured before and after intervention. Data analysis was performed using paired t-test and multivariate analysis of covariance.
Results: Comparing the mean of pre/post test results showed a significant improvement in the angle of kyphosis, spine extension, distance acromion (p=0.001) and chest expansion (p=0.002) in the experimental group. The comparison of findings between the two groups showed a significant difference for the improvement of the angle of kyphosis, spine extension, distance acromion and chest expansion (p=0.001) in the experimental group.
Conclusion: Given the comprehensiveness of the corrective trainings program in this study, experts can use its positive effects in corrcting posture of elderly people.
