Balance or the Postural Sway is defined as the movement of body in still or erect position . Balance is the term frequently used by the health professionals working in a wide variety of clinical specialities . The Centre of Gravity (COG) is the most common parameter which affect the balance, the COG is the balance point in your body at which your upper and lower body weight is balanced, and combined mass of body appears to be concentrated. The disorders in spinal posture are significantly seen at the young age group, the functional Lordosis is predominantly a most common feature in females of young generation, the important parameters used to assess the role of pelvis in sagittal alignment is the pelvic incidence . The normal curvature of the lumbar spine is visible in sagittal plane, some factors such as Age, gender, weight, muscular strength, physical activity, lifestyle of individual shows great impact on spinal curvature .
Aim of the Study: To determine the association Between Balance and Pelvic tilt among the individuals with functional lordosis.
Objectives of the Study: To find out pelvic tilt in individuals with Functional Lordosis
To find out Balance in individuals with Functional Lordosis.
Methodology: Ethical Committee approval was obtained from the Institutional Ethical Committee before the commencement of study. 30 Female individuals were recruited from the College of Physiotherapy with and without Functional Lordosis. The subjects fulfilling the Inclusion Criteria were selected for the study and all the participants were explained about the procedure and importance of the study, Written Informed consent was taken from each participant. Demographic information of the participants including name, age, gender, occupation, past medical history was noted if present along with any Exclusion criteria. The individuals were evaluated individually for measurement of Pelvic tilt and Balance assessment and Lumbar Lordosis. the pelvic tilt was measured by pelvic inclinometer, balance was checked by Sway meter and lumbar lordosis with flexible ruler individually.
Result and Conclusion: We found that in the Female individuals ranging from the age group of 18-25years with the Functional Lordosis has weakly positive correlation with lordosis with Pelvic tilt and Lordosis with right side balance, has showed weakly negative correlation with the anterior side of balance and no association with left and posterior side of balance.
