Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis with an incidence of around 2%, commonly affects thoracic regions. The functional curves or structural treatment cannot be managed by the muscle’s active force and the Ruku’ movement on Moslem prayer led paravertebral muscles to gently bend with consistent forces and improve mild thoracic AIS in 4-week. An 18-yearold female diagnosed with mild thoracic AIS carried out treatment by improving Ruku movements regularly for 4-5 minutes from August 12 to September 12, 2022. The formed angle by an imaginary line of Th 4 and Th 9 spinal processes, showed improvement (2.42% to 4.24%). Another study that used core stabilization training can also resolve AIS for 12 weeks, 3 sessions/week, and with 60 minutes/session.Thus, consistent Ruku’s movement in the proper position promotes the spinal column remaining in the midline, so might correct the mild thoracic AIS’s misaligned, support ergonomic position, and make the patients not easily tired.
