  Background & Aims : The purpose of present research was to examine the effect of a 10 -week core stability training program on balance in females with multiple sclerosis with emphasis on morphology .

  Material & Methods : According to the study inclusion and exclusion criteria, 48 females with multiple sclerosis (age: 32.5 ± 4.96 years, body mass: 68.23 ± 13.26 kg, height: 160.98 ± 6.041 Cm) with mesomorph and endomorph morphology as samples randomly were selected and divided into experimental and control groups (mesomorph control =12, mesomorph experimental =12, endomorph control =12 and endomorph experimental =12). Before test, the Biodex Balance System (BBS) was used to evaluate static and dynamic balance performance. The experimental groups have done endurance and strength exercises of core for 10- weeks (3 sessions a week). Mann- Whitney U test and Wilcoxon test were used to analyse the data (P < 0.05).

  Results : The outcomes showed that there was significant difference in static and dynamic balance in both mesomorph and endomorph experimental groups compared with the control groups. But, no significant difference was seen in dynamic balance in anterior- posterior direction and medial- lateral direction in the mesomorph experimental group compared with the endomorph experimental group (P<0.05 for all). The Balance improvements were observed in the endomorph experimental group more than the mesomorph experimental group. However, no significant difference was seen between the both experimental groups.

  Conclusion : This study demonstrated that the central body resistance training could be suggested as an efficient clinical intervention for dynamic balance in endomorph experimental group and static balance in both mesomorph and endomorph experimental groups in MS Patients.
