Abstract [sv]

Background and purpose: Volleyball requires a lot of the human body, and

effective core stability is necessary for the athlete. Our muscles cooperate as a

chain of motions and core stabilization is the base for the moving muscles.

The most well-known stabilization muscle is m.transversus abdominis (TrA).

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the function of TrA in

Swedish female elite volleyball players and to observe the influence of eight

weeks of stabilization exercise on the TrA. Method: 10 female elite

volleyball players (mean age 24,7 years, range 18-31 years) participated in

the study. TrA was measured in supine position with a pressure biofeedback

unit. Subjects were instructed to draw in the abdominal wall without moving

the pelvis and hold for 10 seconds. After eight weeks of stabilization exercise

the same test was repeated. Results: 40 % of the subjects had an insufficient

function of TrA in the initial test. In the second test 78 % had improved their

results. Conclusion: Stabilization exercise improves the function of TrA and

should be included in elite practise.
