Background and Aim: Core stability has become very popular in fitness training and injury prevention programs that incorporate spinal musculature training including core strengthening and stability. Core dysfunction could be related to lower extremity functional performance including balance. The aim of present study was to evaluate the relationship between core stability and static balance. It will provide a rationale to focus on core stability training to enhance lower-limb performance, improvement of balance, and reduction of injuries. Materials and Methods: Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, thirty nonelite collegiate athletes (male and female) were recruited for the study. Their core stability was analyzed using extensor endurance test (EET), flexor endurance test, and side-bridge test (SBT), whereas the static stability was evaluated using stork stand balance test. Results: Static balance was significantly correlated with EET and right and left SBT of core stability. Conclusion: The study concludes that there is a significant relationship between core stability and static balance in nonelite collegiate athletes in sagittal plane.
