Chronic low back pain is a common health problem with a multifactorial impact on core muscle function as well as causing pain, functional disability and decrease in quality of life, this occur due to the reduction in the physical activity level of the individual causing atrophy and inhibition of the core muscle affecting the stability of the spine


There are several approaches and methods of treating chronic low back pain (CLBP) ranging from education, exercise, electrotherapy and Manual therapy; to alternative treatment such as acupuncture, yoga and Chiropractic. Among the above mention treatment exercise, manual therapy and education are the most frequently utilize for the management of CLBP. The general recommendation for individual with CLBP is to remain active as possible and this can be achieve through exercise.

Evidence shows that active treatment in form of strengthening exercise of the abdominal and back muscles, core stabilization exercise, coordination exercise and aerobic exercise leads to significant reduction in pain and functional disability in patients with CLBP. A number of researches have been focusing on core stability exercise, which is an effective way of recruiting the core muscle (including the abdominal, back, pelvic and hip muscles) that leads to the optimal force production, control of lumbopelvic-hip movement and load transfer from the spine to the pelvis and the lower extremities. The core stabilization exercise has been establish to activate and strength the deep core muscles, but researches are now focusing on the exercise that can be able to activate the core muscles as well as increase the overall health status of the individual
