Sreejisha PK and Jasni CPAbstract:
The current study's goal is to investigate the relationships between hip ER strength, and core strength with lower extremity balance. The study included 20 children of age 8 -14 years who were living in and around Mangalore. Using a star excursion balance test (SEBT), the balance was evaluated. Core strength was evaluated using the plank and lateral plank, while hip external rotator strength was evaluated using a handheld dynamometer. Karl Pearson's Correlation Coefficient was used to assess the relationship between the star excursion balance test, hip external rotator muscle strength, and core strength in children. According to the results, SEBT was correlated with hip external rotator strength which shows that bilateral hip external rotation strength has statistically significant moderate positive correlation with dynamic balance (Right side r=0.56, p=0.009; Left side r=0.49, p=0.02). While correlating the SEBT and core strength, plank had a positive moderate correlation which was statistically significant whereas right and left lateral plank test were non-statistically positively correlated (plank r=0.5, p=0.02; Right lateral plank r=0.29, p=0.20; Left lateral plank r=0.17, p=0.45). Thus it is concluded from the study that hip external rotator strength and core strength has a direct relation with dynamic balance in children.Pages: 286-290 | 158 Views 44 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
