The aim of this study was to compare the effects of varied support surfaces on body alignment and balance when performing exercises for core stabilization.

Methods/Statistical analysis

A total of 19 healthy females took part in this study for 4 weeks. Subjects were separated into stable and unstable surface exercise groups. Core stabilization exercises were carried out 3 times a week for 60 minutes during 4 weeks. Measurements were performed before and after the intervention. We used 4D Formetric analysis to measure for body alignment and BT4 to measure for balance. Differences between the measured values of experimental groups exercising on stable and unstable surfaces were assessed.


There was a notable variancein the mediolateral center of pressure displacement between the pre-and post-tests of the stable and unstable surface groups.


Core stabilized and combined exercise on stable and unstable surfaces could improve dynamic mediolateral balance control.
