Core Stability Exercise With Ball Improves Balance On Stroke Patients
Stroke is a clinical manifestation of cerebral dysfunction, both local and global, which lasts rapidly even more than 24 hours. Stroke is a cerebrovascular disease which refers to any sudden neurologic disorder that occurs due to limited or stopping blood flow through the arterial supply of the brain known as Cerebro Vascular Accident (VSA). Patients with stroke will experience balance disorder, balance disorder in stroke people are related to the inability to regulate weight transfer and decreased muscle mobility. Patients with recurrent strokes have problems with postural control, thus hindering the movement. Balance is also a parameter for stroke people on the success of their therapy. This research to proves that core stability exercise with ball improves balance on stroke patients at Karmel Clinic. This research is an experimental study with a pre-test and post-test group design. The sample consisted of 22 people. Exercise is given 3 times a week for 6 weeks. The sampling technique was random sampling. Balance is measured by Berg Balance Scale Questionnaire (BBS questionnaire). The result of this research indicate that the core stability exercise with ball improves balance on stroke patients significantly (p=0.001). So it suggested to physiotherapist apply it to patients with stroke to improves balance.
