MetadataShow full item record
Background: We aimed to compare static and dynamic balance parameters and health quality parameters in ballerina and non-ballerina adolescents with hallux valgus deformity. Methods: Forty five volunteer female adolescent ballet students between the ages of 7 and 17, with hallux valgus were recruited. Group 1 = in the control group, 31 sedentary adolescents with hallux valgus were included. Group 2 = Romberg test and Flamingo test were used for static balance. The SEBT (Star Excursion Balance Test) was used to measure dynamic balance. Results: Age, sex, and body mass index (BMI) characteristics were similar between ballerina and control groups (P < .05). The Romberg test stands upright with closed eyes, with a significant difference 47.22 in group 1 and 38.13 in group 2. In contrast there was a significant difference between the two groups in the Romberg test single limb with eyes open and closed. For open eyes single limb test mean score was 55.06 in ballerinas and 44.2 in sedentary group, similarly single limb test with closed eyes mean score was 25.68 in group 1 and 18.67 in group 2. Conclusion: In conclusion, the results of this study show that ballerinas have better single-limb and closed-eye balance than sedentary individuals with HV deformities.
