Abstract: 
Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of core stabilization training program on falling in elderly population.
Materials and Methods: For this clinical trial study, forty elderly female subject (age: 70.58
±5.98 years, weight: 55.76±5.7k8g, height: 157.76±7.8 cm) voluntarily participated. A week prior to starting training program the balance measured with the Berg Balance Test (BBT) and subjects divided into two groups, based on obtained score in BBT; low risk falling (group 1), high risk falling (group 2) groups.
Then subjects divided to two control & Experimental groups. The Experimental groups performed a core stabilization program included three levels for 6- week and three times per week on the alternate day and 30 min in section. The post-test of BBT were done for two groups afterwards. Independent and dependent t-test used to analyze the data. Significant level Considered to be %0.05.
Results: In group 1 & 2 no Significant differences shown for pretest of balance between control & experimental groups (p=0.486, p=0.193). The balance of experimental groups compared to control groups improved after training program (p=0.007, p=0.000). Rate of improvement in experimental groups I and 2 were %3.38 and %15.06 and fore control groups were %0.95 and %3.7 respectively.
Conclusion: Core stabilization training program may improve balance and decrease falling in elderly.
