Group A consists of 20 subjects and Group B consists of 20 subjects. Group A were treated with swiss ball exercises and Group B were treated with thera band exercises for 6 weeks. Pre and Post test scores were assessed for abdominal girth. Result: Statistical analysis was done which showed a significant improvement in post-test assessment scores of group A than group B subjects. Comparison of post-test mean values of Group A and B subjects, showed improvement in the Group A than group B. Hence, Group A consisting of 20 subjects, who were treated with swiss ball exercises have more significant improvement than Group B consisting of 20 subjects, who were treated with thera band exercises at p <0.0001. Conclusion: This study concluded that both the groups have a significant effect in both the exercises. While comparing both groups, Group A have more significant improvement than Group B.
