Methodology Data source:
- To create awareness among professionals & students and to cognize the importance of the physio balance.
- Balance refers to an individual’s ability to maintain their line of gravity within their Base of support (BOS).
- It can also be described as the ability to maintain equilibrium, where equilibrium can be defined as any condition in which all acting forces are cancelled by each other resulting in a stable balanced system.

Little significant scientific studies were found relating to the importance of rehabilitation & assessment in sports. Five studies were selected based on inclusion criteria. Two pilot studies included as The Role of assessment in sports. Results:
- Exalted balance makes daily activities, such as walking on stairs, carrying heavy items, and plop changing directions, easier. A strong, stable base will allow you to move with more coordination, ease, and fluidity. Also gain stronger and more enhanced movement during athletic activities.
- Evolutive good balance helps to improve overall health and fitness levels. These improvements help to prevent the risk of injury and falls, especially in older adults and people with Parkinson’s disease. This allows maintaining independence longer.
Physiotherapy interference like balance training combined with muscle strengthening, the range of movement and walking training exercise is effective in improving balance in patients with Parkinson’s disease and more effective than balance exercises alone. Highly challenging balance training and incremental speed-dependent treadmill training can also be part of a rehabilitation program for management of balance dysfunction and Postural instability in patients with idiopathic Parkinson’s disease.
