Aim of work. The aim of this work was to assess body postures of primary school pupils and to assess the influence of static splayfoot on bad posture within lower limbs and spine.
Material and Methods. Research sample included 306 grade four pupils attending primary schools in Kluczbork municipal district. The research test were conducted at the turn of 2017 and 2018. The results gathered in the test were subjected to statistical analysis to determine correlations between particular body posture deformities. Correlation analysis was used to determine correlations between the assessed variables.
Results. The analysis of posture fault occurrence in the research population showed variables of statistical significance for spine curvatures, flat foot and cross knees. Additionally, knee joints flexion contracture was reported in one child.
1. Bad body posture within lower limbs and spine are common among grade four pupils.
2. There is a strong correlation between splayfoot and deformities within knees and spine.
