About

Static balance is the ability to hold the body in a specific position and posture, while dynamic balance is the ability to maintain balance while moving. Vision, somatosensation, vestibular, and hearing are integrated to achieve balance Ethical committee approval will be obtained. A written consent will be taken from all subjects in the language best understood by them, after fulfilling the inclusion criteria, Patients age 10-14 years will be recruited through Randomized Clinical trial in which convenient sampling technique will be used. Group A 17 participants will receive Pilates training and group B 17 participants will receive balance Proprioception exercises. Pediatric balance scale and Lower Extremity Functional scale will be used .The result after statistical analysis will either show both treatments equally effective or not. Data will be calculated before and after treatment with the help of outcome measure tools.

Full description

Static balance is the ability to hold the body in a specific position and posture, while dynamic balance is the ability to maintain balance while moving. Vision, somatosensation, vestibular, and hearing are integrated to achieve balance. Various strategies are available in physiotherapy for addressing imbalance. Pilates and other balance proprioception exercises may be used as part of a treatment plan, albeit this may vary depending on the etiology of the imbalance. Patients age 10-14 years will be recruited through Randomized Clinical trial in which convenient sampling technique will be used. 34 Participants will be included in this study. Group A 17 participants will receive Pilates exercises, after the initial evaluations, the individuals in the Clinical Pilates training group will be informed about the definition, goals and benefits of clinical Pilates, will be familiarized with the exercises and how to use the five key elements of clinical Pilates (head-neck location - shoulder location - chest cage location - central focus [neutral position] - how they should preserve and maintain breathing) and group B 17 participants will receive balance Proprioception exercises on balance board with different exercises. Pediatric Balance Scale and Lower Extremity Functional scale will be used. The result after statistical analysis will either show both treatments equally effective or not. The results will be analyzed on SPSS.

Pilates Training
Experimental group
Description:
Group A 17 participants will receive Pilates training General rehabilitation exercises. Balance and strengthening exercises. Stretching exercises will be performed.Each exercises will be performed with ten repetition for three sessions per week.

Other: Pilates Training
Balance Proprioception Exercises
Experimental group
Description:
Group B 17 participants will receive balance Proprioception exercises. The training program will consist of 14 basic exercises on and off the balance board, with variations on each exercise. The program will be included four prescribed exercises: (a) exercise without any material, (b) exercise with a ball only, (c) exercise with a balance board only, and (d) exercise with a ball and a balance board. Also for gait and dynamic balance activity training use of Cobblestones walking mat that affects postural control. Walking task on the Cobblestone walking mat included: walking backward, walking sideways, and walking under dim light conditions. Mat walking time per session increased from 6 to 12 min during the acclimation period of the first two sessions and progressed gradually but incrementally to a maximum of 20 min per session over the 12 ensuing sessions.
