Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and degenerative nervous disease which affects the central nervous system. Imbalance is one of the main problems in people with multiple sclerosis (1). This imbalance leads to a decrease in the stability; the stability loss can increase the risk of falling (2). One component of the balance is "core stabilization", that means ability to control the body's response to disturbances caused by the hand movement or any other distractions. Results indicate that the central stability in people with MS is less compared to healthy subjects (3). Weakness of the central part of the body that contains a sum waist, hip and thigh can be significantly impaired in activities. Research has shown that the central area of the body muscles may improve the body's ability to performance. Studies on the role of core stability and performance improvements have been performance. Clarke central role in maintaining stability along with good body condition during functional activities and prevent incorrect movement patterns, and were considered important factor for improving the performance. Exercise therapy and exercise can lead to better perform daily activities and improving physical condition of patients (4 ). The aim of the present study was evaluate the effect Core stabilization exercises on balance in women with multiple sclerosis.
