Effect of eight-week core stabilization program on core muscle endurance and function in female staff nurses

Gopika S, Rajesh Dinakaran.

Abstract
Background: Low back pain is a widespread pain condition in the working population. Anticipatory postural adjustment of the transverses abdominis muscle has received particular interest for the research of postural control in low back pain. The relationship between tibialis anterior anticipatory postural adjustment and the pain reported in low back during prolong standing.

Aims and Objectives: To find out the effect of core stabilization program on core muscle endurance and functions in staff nurses.

Materials and Methods: Study design was quasi-experimental study, done with a sample size of 18 staff nurses, at SRM Ladies Medical Hostel, SRM Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, SRM University, Kattankulathur, India. Subjects were selected according to inclusion and exclusion criteria, and informed consent was taken, and intervened with a core stabilization exercise program for about 8 weeks; endurance and functional test were measured before and after the intervention. Paired t-test was done to find out the difference before and after the intervention.

Results: Shows there is a significant difference (P < 0.05) in endurance test (flexor, extensor, and horizontal side support) and there is no significant difference (P > 0.05) in functional test (single leg distance hop test, timed leg hop test, and squat test).

Conclusions: 8 weeks core stabilization training showed improvement of core endurance, but not on functions.

Key words: Core Stability; Anticipatory Postural Adjustment; Core Endurance; Core Function; Low Back Pain
