The purpose of this study is to compare the performance scores of non-contact lower extremity injuries and endurance in core area of Shiraz (Iran) women soccer players with different types of pelvic tilt (PT) and without – Pelvic Tilt. Subjects of this study included 48 soccer players (12 without tilt) (age: 22.50 ± 1.16 years, height: 1.63 ± 0.09 m, weight: 58.33 ± 13.07 kg, BMI: 22.10 ± 5.98 kg/m2, 12 persons with anterior tilt (Age: 22.33 ± 1.23 years, height: 1.64 ± 0.03 m, weight: 54.66 ± 14.50 and BMI: 20.28 ± 5.22), 12 persons with posterior tilt (Age: 22.83 ± 1.19 years, height: 1.62 ± 0.04 m, weight: 50.33 ± 3.91 kg, BMI 19.09 ± 1.91 and 12 patients with lateral pelvic tilt (Age: 23.00 ± 1.12 years, height: 1.64 ± 0.05 m, weight: 52.41 ± 2.74, BMI: 19.37 ± 1.67 kg/m2, which were randomly selected. A demographic questionnaire was used to collect demographic data and sports history and a tilt gauge was used to measure pelvic tilt changes. Core endurance was assessed by McGill Endurance Test and lower extremity injury risk using Single-Leg Squat test. ANOVA was used to compare the factors in the groups and the LSD test was used to compare the two groups. The results showed that there were 60 degree flexion test (P = 0.005, F = 4.88) , Sorensen test (P = 0.03, F = 3.24) and Abdominal Plank test (P = 0.008). P, F = 4.43) , Right Plank Test (P = 0.001, F = 12.70) , Left Plank Test (P = 0.001, F = 13.06) , score of core endurance score Significant differences were observed between the groups (P = 0.001, F = 26.27) , single-leg squat test (F = 45.66, P = 0.001). There was also a better performance in subjects with normal pelvic tilt. From the results of this study, it can be concluded that there is a significant difference in endurance and performance in people with different types of pelvic tilt. An important step can be taken to correct lower extremity risk factors.
