Abstract: Objective To observe the stability of orthostatism and weight-bearing position, and range of motion (ROM) of vertical plane and coronal plane of thoracic vertebrae through measuring spinal forms before and after standing exercise, and explore the corrective effect of standing exercise on spine unbalance. Methods The university students (n=30) were chosen as subjects, and divided into test group and control group. After standing exercise, the changes of thoracic intervertebral angles of spinal orthostatism and weight-bearing position, anterior flexion and posterior extension of vertical plane, and left bending and right bending of coronal plane were measured by using spinal measurement apparatus in 2 groups. The measurement results were compared. Results The comparison results showed that the stability of 2 spinal positions and ROM of vertical plane and coronal plane had significant differences between 2 groups (P<0.05). The ROM of coronal plane had greatly significant difference in test group before and after standing exercise (P<0.001), and that has no difference in control group at the same time points. Conclusion The differences in the stability and ROM of thoracic vertebrae indicate that standing exercise can adjust the form of spine and correct spine unbalance.
