Since imbalance considers as main cause of falling among the elderly, balance is part of the scientific challenge for last decades. The aim of this study was to comparisons of Berg Balance Scale (BBS) following six weeks core stabilization training in female elderly individuals. Sixty adult female subjects (age: 66.58±5.98 years, weight: 57.76±5.78 Kg, height: 159.76±7.8 cm) voluntarily participated in study. A week prior to starting training program the balance measured with the BBT and subjects divided in two groups on obtained score in BBT, low risk falling (group1), high risk falling (group2). Then subjects divided to two control and experimental groups. The experimental groups performed a core stabilization program included 6- week and three times per week. The post-test of BBT did for two groups afterward. Paired sample t-test, and t-test for independent groups used to analyze the data (P≤0.05). Significant differences were seen between pre and post BBT after the applying core stabilization training program for experimental groups. However the results not showed any difference between pre and post BBT for control group. Core stabilization specifically considering the methods of this study could be implemented for balance in older adults.
