AIM: The effect of 10-week core stability training (CST) program on balance in women with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis (MS) according to Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score.
METHODS: Sixty-nine MS women were randomly assigned into two groups as the intervention group and the control group. These groups were categorized into three subgroups according to the EDSS as follows: subgroup A (EDSS 2.5 to 3.5), subgroup B (EDSS 3.5 to 4.5), and subgroup C (EDSS 4.5 to 5.5). The intervention group performed a CST program for 10 weeks and to evaluate static and dynamic balance performance in pre-and post-tests, the Biodex Stability System (BSS) have been used. In addition, the participants’ core muscle function was evaluated using the endurance and isometric muscle strength tests.
RESULTS: The results show a significant difference between post-test variables of the core muscles function, static and dynamic balances in interventional subgroups in comparison with the control subgroups. The improved balance order has been given as subgroup C > B > A.
CONCLUSIONS: The CST program could be suggested as an efficient clinical intervention for improving dynamic and static balance in the MS women due to the improvement of core muscle function, especially for the EDSS score more than 3.5.
CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: ⋅ The CST could be performed as an efficient clinical intervention for improving dynamic and static balance in MS women due to the improvement of core muscle function. ⋅ The present protocol could be helpful for the patients with MS especially for the EDSS score more than 3.5.
