Abstract: Background: Lumbar core stability performance is one of the function of the core muscles of the lumbar spine hence Lumbar spine dysfunction may lead to any alteration in the lower extremity functional performance including balance performance. Establishing a relation between the core stability and balance performance will provide a rationale to give core stability training for reducing balance deficit related injuries. Objective: To determine the correlation between the Core stability performance and the lower extremity static balance and dynamic balance performance in the healthy individuals. Methods: Sixty healthy active subjects (30 males And 30 females) were selected for this study on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria. Their Core stability performance was evaluated using prone plank test, side plank test, abdominal fatigue test and the lower extremity static balance performance using the Stork single limb balance test and the dynamic balance performance using SEBT. Data was analyzed using the Pearson correlation test. Results: Lower limb static balance performance was significantly correlated with that of the prone plank test (p=2.210-16, r=0.83), side plank test (p=4.410-10, r=0.70), abdominal fatigue test performance (p=3.910-8, r=0.63). And dynamic balance performance was significantly correlated with that of the prone plank test (p=0.009, r=0.33), side plank test (p=0.07, r=0.22), abdominal fatigue test performance (p=0.02, r=0.29). Conclusion: This study concludes that there is significant correlation of the lower extremity static and dynamic balance performance with that of the core stability.
