    Abstract Scoliosis is the most common type of spinal deformity of the young adults, and women outnumber men about 10:1 [1], in which the Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is up to 90% for ages 10 to 16year-old teenagers [2]. Studies revealed that due to the 3-dimensional musculoskeletal deformities, the AIS subjects to the dynamic postural instability including vestibular and proprioception disorders [3-5]. Dynamic postural Balance is monitored by integration of cortical modulation and somatosensory response [6], and the either motor or sensory impairment lead to balance dysfunction as well as pathologic gait. Studies revealed that the… More >
