Abstract:   (9002 Views)
The aim of this clinical trial was to compare the effects of two techniques forward & backward running on the static balance. In a pilot study the reliability of static balance test was confirmed. A convenient sample of 30 healthy young men was selected and randomly assigned into two groups of 15. The testing period for both groups lasted about 6 weeks with 3 sessions per week each session took 15 minutes. The used test for static balance was Modified Phomberg test and measurements were taken at the beginning and every two weeks hence forward. Therefore, there was between and within group analysis using independent t-test and dependent t-test. After the end of the sixth week, significant increase in static balance was observed in both groups, but these two techniques had similar effects, i.e., the observed difference between groups was not statistically significant. Additionally, the advancement in backward running group was faster.
