The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of selected core stability training on stable level on balance and motor function of women athletes.
The statistical population of this study included all active women. 24 women active in sports were selected as the statistical sample of the study and finally were randomly divided into tow groups of core stability training (Number: 12 People, Age: 22.75 ± 2.95 years, Height: 1.63 ± 0.09 m, Weight: 58.33 ± 13.07 kg, Body Mass Index: 22.10 ± 5.98 Kg/m2) and control groups (Number: 12 People, Age: 24.33 ± 1.77years, Height: 1.62 ± 0.04m, Weight: 50.33 ± 3.91 kg, Body Mass Index: 19.09 ± 1.91 Kg/m2). Strok and Y balance tests was used to evaluate static and dynamic balance, respectively. Also, motor function of subjects was assessed by function movement screening test. All tow groups participated in pre-test and post-test. In addition, the training group performed core stabilization training at stable levels for 6 weeks and three sessions per week. ANCOVA was used to compare differences between research variables and paired t-test was used to assess within-group changes. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS 24 software.
Correlation t-test results showed that both exercises at stable state (P=0.001) had significant effect on static balance, dynamic balance and functional movement screening test score. No significant changes were observed in the control group after this period. Also ANCOVA test results in post-test between the mean values of static balance scores between the groups in the core stability-control group (p=0.001). Also between the mean values of dynamic post-test scores between the core stability groups at a stable level-control in anterior (P=0.01), posterolateral (P=0.01) and total score (P=0.01) There was a significant difference. In addition, there was differences between the core stability groups at stable level-control (p=0.001) in functional movement screening test.
In general, the results of the present study indicate the effect of stable core stability training programs on balance and performance. Accordingly, these training program are suggested to improve balance and reduce the risk of injury.
