This study aimed to evaluate 10 children, aged 15-18 who presented problems of static vertebral, khyposis and khypotic attitudes. Following the evaluation sought to treat deficiencies by two different procedures: physical Therapy and neuromuscular electrostimulation. In the end, the results of the two procedures were compared, thus making it possible to determine which of them is most effective to correct these problems more quickly. During the study, we evaluated and then analyzed the angle of the column and the scapulo-humeral belt deviation. These measurements were made in three different spatial times: initially, intermediate and at the end. The most effective procedure, was physical therapy, compared to the neuromuscular electrostimulation procedure. In other words, for the angle of the spine, in the case of the first experimental sample - physical therapy, there was a decreasing evolution from the initial to the final point of 9.00, and for the second experimental sample - the neuromuscular electrostimulation only 7.00.
