Abstract
This study examined the effect of sensorimotor training on static balance in two different environments; in water and on land. Thirty non-clinical university male students (aged 22±0.85 years) were divided randomly into three groups; water, land and control groups. The experimental groups performed their respective sensorimotor training programs for 6 weeks (3 times per week). The Stork Stand Balance Test was used to examine the static balance at pre- and post-time points. Significant main effect between group (P=0.001, η=0.78), and also time (P=0.001, η=0.72) were found. The post-hoc test showed significant differences between training in water compared to cont...
