Background and Aim: Exercise as a specific form of physical activity arrow could have a significant impacts on development’s process of body posture. The aim of the study was to assess and compare the body posture of girls Karate athletes with non-athletes. Materials and Methods: 50 girl’s karate athletes and 50 matched non-athletes participated in this study. Forward Head using photogrammetry, rounded shoulders with a goniometer, kyphosis and lordosis using a flexicurve and anterior pelvic tilt by Saunders’s method was measured. Statistical analysis of data using independent t- test and the significance level was 0.05. Results: The Mean forward head angle (p=0.004), the left and right rounded shoulders (p=0.0001), kyphosis (p=0.001) in karate athletes was greater than non-athletes and there were statistical significant. In addition, no significant difference was found between Karate athletes and non-athletes in mean lordosis (p=0.47) and anterior pelvic tilt (p=0.75). Conclusion: The results showed that despite the differences in parameters examined in this study is low, it is clinically important and coaches and athletes should accommodate necessary preventive and corrective Strategies in training programs.
