Introduction: In rehabilitation medicine, using targeted and personalized approaches are proposed, so that training protocols adjustments, based on gender, age, level of disability and the rate of progress, can have more favorable results. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of personalized comprehensive rehabilitation training on static and dynamic balance in women with multiple sclerosis (MS) with different levels of disability.

Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 92 patients admitted to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Shahrekord city in 2015 were selected and on the basis of disability categorized into three groups of mild, moderate and severe. Then, each group was randomly divided into experimental and control groups. The personalized comprehensive rehabilitation training program was implemented during 12 weeks, three times per week. Static and dynamic balance were assessed by standing on one leg and timed up and go tests, respectively, using SPSS version 21.

Results: The results showed that 12 weeks of training resulted in improvement in static and dynamic balance in women with MS presenting different levels of disability (P < 0.05). However, comparing with the control group, no significant differences were shown in group 3.

Conclusions: The implementation of the comprehensive rehabilitation exercises affected the recovery of patients with MS and made a significant difference in their static and dynamic balance. According to the results, it is recommended that experts use these exercises as complementary therapies along with drug treatments for patients with MS.
