AbstractBackground: The most popular recreational activity in the world, mountaineering involves a variety of factors, including musculoskeletal, tactile, physiological, technical, mental, and physical elements. Various muscular strengths need to be on play in order to protect the trekker from injury. Almost every sport, including recreational trekking; special focus is always received by core. Core strength is in direct relation with both static and dynamic balance of the body.
Objectives: To find out whether there is correlation between dynamic balance and weak core in recreational trekkers.
Method: The mother article calculated the sample size and determined it to be 256. Both male and female subjects were sought out for the study with their informed consent, depending on the inclusion criteria. The sample was then subjected to various outcome measures like Double Leg lowering test, 60-Second Tall-Kneeling Test & Unilateral hip bridge endurance and the data was noted. This data was analyzed with statistical measures and correlation was found.
Result: For comparing the variable factor and the outcome measure and conclusion, a statistical analysis using the Student's t test was conducted. Varying results was achieved with different outcome measures and the compounding factor. Results was found to be significant for dynamic imbalance when assessed with 60-Second Tall-Kneeling Test with p value = 0.005* to 0.0001* for various compounding factor and with Unilateral hip bridge endurance with p value= 0.05*. The correlation between the dynamic balance and weak core among the subjects was examined using Pearson's correlation, and it was discovered that there was no significant result. However, a positive association was found.
Conclusion: The study concluded that the recreational trekking subjects do have weak core and the dynamic balance is affected in them significantly, but there was no correlation seen among the weak core and dynamic balance in the subjects
