Aging impairs the central nervous system capability to process vestibular, visual and proprioceptive signals responsible for maintaining body balance. Total hip replacement (THR) is a procedure, which can improve the quality of life in osteoarthritic patients. However, dynamic stability deficits and impairment in lower limb can be observed for several months after the procedure. Purposes: to investigate the effect of dynamic balance training and traditional rehabilitation on hip musculature moments, and stability index in unilateral total hip arthroplasty programming.

As the injury and re-injury to lateral ankle ligaments are common in athletes due to the restricted ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (DROM) and dynamic balance (DB), this study was aimed to find out the effectiveness of MobEx intervention to improve and sustain the DROM and DB. Twenty-seven athletes with history of unilateral LAS were recruited in one of the experimental, placebo and control groups randomly. All of them were assessed for their DROM and DB using weight bearing lunge test and Modified Bass Test for Dynamic Balance respectively as a pre-test score. After this pre-test measurement, the experimental group were intervened by MobEx intervention for six weeks and the placebo group were intervened by placebo intervention for six weeks too. Whereas the control group neither intervened by MobEx intervention nor the placebo Intervention. The DROM and DB were measured after six-weeks for post-test scores and again after one month for retention-test scores. The primary aim was examined with repeated measures of multivariate analysis of variance. The interaction for the repeated measures of multivariate analysis of variance was statistically significant for the DROM and DB in the experimental group (P<0.001), and for the DB in the placebo group (P<0.001). The improvements in DROM and DB were significantly greater at both six weeks and one month in favor of experimental group. The result suggests that the MobEx intervention is effective not only in improving the DROM and DB but also to retain its improved effects

Balance ability is responsible for the complex sport movements, as well as for injuries prevention. Balance training is used prophylactically to reduce the risk of lower extremity injuries in athletes allowing for successful athletic participation. The purpose of this study is to identify the effectiveness of sport specific trampoline training in improving dynamic balance among amateur Wushuathletesin Sultan Idris Education University, Malaysia. The study design used was purposive sampling. There were 12 amateur Wushu athletes age ranging from 20 to 25 years old who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were randomly assigned equally into Experimental Group (EG) or Control Group (CG). The EG was undergone 12 sessions sport specific trampoline training intervention in four weeks while the CG did not receive any intervention but remained normal training. The Y-Balance Test was used to measure the dynamic balance before and after the intervention for both groups. Data was analysedusing independent sample t-testand the significance level was predetermined at p<0.05 prior to study.The study finding indicated that the EG showed significant improvement on dynamic balance (p=0.016) after completing the intervention. The researcher is suggesting the Wushu coaches and athletes toincorporatethisinterventionas one of their training regime in order to improve dynamic balance, hence, it may reduce the risk of sustaining lower extremities injuries.

The ability to maintain balance is essential for almost every daily life activity. Balance is a crucial aspect for many sporting and lifestyle activities, such as preventing falls and reducing the risk of injuries. The objective of this study is to identify the effectiveness of a six weeks neuromuscular training program to improve balance among female Futsal players in Sultan Idris Education University, Malaysia. The study design used was true experimental design. The purposive sampling method was utilised to recruit subjects. There were ten female Futsal players age ranging from 19 to 22 years old who fulfilled the inclusion criteria and were randomly assigned equally (N=5) into Control Group and Experimental Group. The Experimental Group undergone 18 sessions of neuromuscular training intervention in six weeks while the Control Group did not receive any intervention but continued their normal training routine. The Y-Balance Test was used to measure the dynamic balance before and after the intervention for both groups. Data was analysed using independent sample t-test and the significance level was predetermined at p<0.05 prior to study. The study finding indicated that the Experimental Group showed significant improvement on dynamic balance (p=0.004) after completing the intervention and when compared with Control Group (p=0.037) for post-intervention. The researcher suggests this program could be incorporated into the training regime for Futsal players to improve balance in hopes of reducing the risk of lower extremities injury
