Abstract

Background Posture abnormalities such as scoliosis may cause injuries among athletes. Symmetrical posture is important for athletes to make their body balance and sturdy. Symmetrical posture allows athletes to reach high performance during training and competition. Long periods of injuries may damaged cartilage tissue and induce osteoarthritis in the knee joints. However, the effect of posture abnormalities among athletes especially scoliosis on osteoarthritis remain unknown. Therefore, we aim to identify the effect of scoliosis among athletes on secondary osteoarthritis in the knee joint. Methods Analytic cross-sectional design has been used for this study. 92 athletes with scoliosis were chosen by random sampling technique in National Sport Hospital of Indonesia. The data were analysed with Chi-Square, Fisher test and Prevalence Ratio
