Abstract: 
Background and Aim: The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of Pilates and traditional corrective exercises on lumbar lordosis. Materials and Methods: Statistical population of the present study consisted of nonathletic female students from Farhangian University in Khoy. A total of 30 participants (19-24 years old) with lumbar lordosis were selected and divided into two experimental (Pilates and traditional corrective) and control groups. The experimental groups performed the related exercises 3 days in a week for 3 weeks, each session lasting for 60 min each. Flexible ruler, Thomas test, leaning forward, squat test, and sit-up test were used, respectively, for measuring lordosis degree, flexibility of quadriceps muscles, flexibility of back muscles, power of hamstring, and power of abdominal muscles before and after the six-week training. To compare pre-test and post-test of dependent variables, paired t-test was used. One way ANOVA and Bonferoni test was run to compare the three groups. Results: The results showed that in both experimental groups lumbar lordosis decreased (in both groups: p=0. 001) and flexibility of quadriceps (traditional corrective group: p=0. 001; Pilates group: p=0. 003), flexibility of back muscles (in both groups: p=0. 001), power of hamstring (in both groups: p=0. 001), and power of abdominal muscles (in both groups: p=0. 001) improved. There was no significant difference between two experimental groups for lumbar lordosis (p=1. 000), flexibility of quadriceps (p=0. 856), flexibility of back muscles (p=0. 786), power of hamstring muscles (p=1. 000), and power of abdominal muscles (p=0. 579). Conclusion: Based on the findings, it is suggested that to treat lumbar lordosis both Pilates and traditional corrective exercises can be used. Both training methods may treat hyperlordosis with increase in the flexibility of back muscles and quadriceps muscles and with increase in the power of hamstring and of abdominal muscles.
