Purpose: There is a lack of evidence about trunk muscle endurance, range of motion (ROM), flexibility and quality of life (QoL) in subjects with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) following posterior instrumentation and fusion (PIF) surgery. The study aimed to compare trunk muscle endurance, ROM, flexibility, and QoL of the AIS subjects with lumbar or thoracic level after surgery. It also investigated the relationship between trunk muscle endurance, ROM, flexibility, and QoL in subjects with AIS.
