A relationship study between trunk muscle endurance with static and dynamic balance in female collegiate students

Abstract: Fatigue of trunk muscle contributes to spinal instability over strenuous and prolonged physical tasks and therefore may lead to injury. The purpose of the study was to assess the relationship between trunk muscle endurance with static and dynamic balance in female college students. Thirty-three Female college students studying under West Bengal State University (age 21±2, height 155.05±2.6 weight 47.4±5.3) took part in the study. In first phase, static balance was measured using a quantifiable clinical test called the single-leg stance test. Star excursion balance test (SEBT) is one of the reliable and feasible methods and was used to assess dynamic balance as it challenges a person’s ability to maintain a stable base of support simultaneously performing reach movement. Trunk muscle endurance was assessed using Sorensen test of trunk extensor endurance test, trunk flexor endurance test and side bridge endurance test. A Pearson’s product moment correlation was applied to test if the trunk muscle endurance measures significantly correlate the static and dynamic balance at 0.05 level of significance. Based on the findings of the study, the result clearly indicates significant relationship of trunk muscle endurance with static and dynamic balance in female college students
