The study was designed to assess the exposure to postural disorders in the intensive-growth age, rate the disorders and offer the relevant physical training tools to correct the potential static postural and muscular control malfunctions. 8-11/ 12-16 year-old males and females with a special attention to variations in the sample postural malfunctions were sampled for the study. The study data and analyses showed that the exposure to scoliosis may be effectively controlled by the initiatives to timely correct the potential static postural and muscular control malfunctions in the intensive-growth age period, with a special attention to the postural control and correction in the 12-14 year-old female group. It is recommended to design the relevant postural control programs driven by the physical education tools so as to make a special emphasis on the active everyday practices (walking, posture correction etc.) rather than specific muscular groups.

Keywords: posture, deadlift strength, strength endurance of dorsal and abdominal muscles, static load on spine.
