Effects of Core Stabilization Exercise in Subacute Non-Specific Low Back Pain: Pilot Study
This randomized controlled trial aimed to examine effects of core stabilization exercise (CSE) in subacute non-specific low back pain. Sample size was participants were women aged 18-60 years with low back pain duration between 6 - 12 weeks. Participants were divided into two groups, an exercise group (n=10) and a control group (n=10). Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was performed to compare differences between groups for outcome measures. Results found that the exercise group showed significantly reductions in pain intensity score and disability score than control group (P < 0.05) at the 4th and the 7th week of intervention.
