Abstract: Title: Comparison of static andrndynamic balance among male amateur basketball Players.
Background: The purpose of this studyrnwas to examine the relationship between Star Excursion Balance Test reach distance and lower extremityrninjury among male basketball players. In this study we can expected that reachrndistance will be normalized to limb length would be related to risk of lowerrnextremity injury. Balance Error Scoring System is done to determine balancernperformance on subject before Playersrnstart to playing games.
Objective: The importance of thisrnstudy is to determine effect on Swiss ball exercise of static balance amongrnmale basketball players. The importance of this study is to determine therneffect on plyometric push up of dynamic balance among the male basketballrnplayers.
Design: An Experimental design.
Subject: 30 subjects were dividedrninto two group. First, 15 subjects were assessed with Swiss ball exercise forrnstatic balance and another group will be assessed with plyometric push up forrndynamic balance.
Mainrnoutcomes measure: Errors from the Balance Error Scoring System and normalizedrnleg reach distances from the Star Excursion Balance Test were used to assessrnstatic and dynamic balance
Results: It showed statisticalrnsignificance effect p< 0.05 of 95 % confidence interval. The mean andrnstandard deviation of static firm are -0.4667 ± 3.883 and for foam are Vi-2.267±6.227.Therernis no significant effect on static balance test. The mean and standardrndeviation for dynamic are 5.574±4.489.There is significant effect on dynamicrnbalance test.
Conclusion: The finding of this studyrnshows that the Plyometric push up improve subject’s dynamic balance within 6rnweeks intervention compared to the Swiss ball exercise of static balance. Therernis no significant effect on static balance. The dynamic balance shows morernsignificant compared to the static balance. This study was determined thatrnplayers can be used plyometric technique to improve dynamic balance. It isrnfound that plyometric is resistance training emphasizing the loading of musclernduring an eccentric muscle action and knee extensor muscle. Thus, concludingrnPlyometric push should be included in the training program of the athletesrnespecially those who require more dynamic balance such as basketball players inrnorder to improve the athletic performance.
