Abstract

Background: Rounded shoulder is a common postural abnormality in young adults due to abnormal posture adaptation while working. It may lead to decrease in thoracic mobility and increase in intradiscal pressure. In severe cases breathing problem may occur due to changes in the anterio-posterior diameter. Few studies have shown the effect of elastic band exercise on rounded shoulder to improve the postural alignment. Shoulder stabilization exercises and pectoralis minor stretching is also effective in rounded shoulder. In these study structured exercise were use to correct the rounded shoulder posture and to prevent the further complication. Objective: To find out the effectiveness of structured exercise programme on subjects with rounded shoulder. Material and method: In this pre-post intervention study 32 individuals with rounded shoulders were included. They were randomly divided into 2 groups with 16 individuals in each group. Group A were treated with structured exercises and Group B were treated with elastic band exercises for 4 weeks. After pre-post assessment, data was analysed with the help of appropriate statistical methods. Results: According to the statistical analysis there is significant decrease in measurement of rounded shoulder in both Group A and Group B with p value <0.0010 and <0.0001 respectively. Conclusion: Structured exercise and elastic band exercises both are equally effective in improving the rounded shoulders.
