Three groups are followed: a control group, an exercise group 1 (stabilisation training) and an exercise group 2 (Tergumed training). Treatment during 6 weeks with 2 sessions a week. Evaluation by questionnaires and objective tests: postural control (Neurocom Balance Master), proprioception (Zebris system) and muscle activity (strength - endurance-stabilisation-relaxation-coordination) by surface electromyography.
