Effects of Core Stability Exercises on the Improvement of Counter Balance and Dynamic Balance Abilities of Tennis Club Members
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to identify the influence of core stability exercises on the counter balance and dynamic balance ability of tennis club members and to provide the basic data for developing the training methods for improving the athletic performance and injury prevention through physical imbalance. METHODS: In order to achieve these goals, 12 subjects who are currently registered as a player in the having 5 years or more athletic career. As a result of observing
... serving improvements on counter balance and dynamic balance ability using the core stability exercises, the following conclusion was derived. RESULTS: As for the counter balance ability, there were no significant differences between pre-and post-values in the exercise group after completing the core stabilization program. As for the dynamic balance ability, there were significant differences between pre-and post-values in the exercise group, except for down (D) postures, whereas, there were no changes or decreases between pre-and postvalues in the control group after completing the core stabilization program. Meanwhile, in the aspect of comparisons between post-values in both groups, there were significant improvements in up-right (UR), right (R), down-right (DR), down/left (DL), left (L), up/left (UL), and overall dynamic scores (OVE) of the exercise group. In the aspect of comparisons between post-values in both groups, there were significant improvements in only the exercise group. CONCLUSIONS: When concluding the results of this study, it was found that core stability exercises was an effective exercise in the improvement of counter balance and dynamic balance ability of tennis club members. In addition, in order to have precise and stable movements through stabilization of position improvement of physical imbalance, it is thought to require a suitable training development for tennis club members along with repetitive training.
