The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of backward walking treadmill training on static and dynamic balance. Forty adolescent girls (mean ± SD: age 15.55 ± 1.8 years, height 1.721± 0.00871 m, body mass 65.255 ± 0.468 kg), who participated in interschool volleyball competition and in the Catch Them Young (CTY) programme organised by Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar volunteered to participate. All participants were informed about the study aim and methodology as well as about the possibility of immediate acceptance at any time of the experimentation.  Subjects agreed to the above conditions in writing. They were randomly assigned into two groups: A (Training Group) and B (Control Group), n=20 each. The subjects from training group were subjected to a 5-week treadmill training programme. This lasted 5-weeks and consisted of daily sessions, lasting 50 min each. The students completed the stork stand and wobble board tests to determine static balance on the leg respectively. The static and dynamic balance significantly improved in training group compared with the control one. The backward training may be recommended to improve static and dynamic balance and may contribute to enhance concentration based performance.
Key words:

walk, treadmill, static, dynamic
