          Abstract

          Objective: The study investigated the effect of core stability training on balance in elderly women.

          Method: Sixty female volunteers 61–70 years of age were divided into training ( n=30) and control groups ( n=30). Core stability training was given to patients in the training group, and walking exercise was given to patients in the control group. The function of static and dynamic balance was detected before training and 30 weeks after training.

          Results: The time of standing on one foot with eyes closed after training in the training group was significantly longer than the control group, and the stellate balance test with stretching the lower limbs straight ahead, behind, and laterally in the training group was significantly better than the control group. The performance of two lower limbs during the training in the straight ahead direction, behind, and to the outer side in the training group was significantly better than the control group. Significant differences also occurred when the left leg was supported on the outer rear, and the right leg was supported on the medial front and rear.

          Conclusion: Core stability training is more beneficial than walking exercises in improving balance in elderly women.
