To examine how stability and sensorimotor skills of female farm workers suffering from Cumulative Trauma Disorders respond to pilates and complex exercises after a 12-week period.
The subjects aged 44 to 53 years old participated for 12 weeks in this study. Pilates and complex exercise regimes were undertaken twice a week for 12 weeks. The subjects were tested in body stability, sensorimotor control ability, and subjective pain scale (VAS) prior to and following pilates and complex exercises.
Shoulder and back pain in the pilates group showed significant differences. Stability and sensoryimotor skills (p<.001) in shoulder pain test subjects undertaking a complex exercise regimen showed significant improvement (p<.05).
Pilates can lead to improvement of shoulder and back pain, in addition to stability and sensorimotor skills of female farm workers suffering from Cumulative Trauma Disorders. In the near future, these workers will require balance exercises in order to maintain a neutral position.
