In this study, the effect of 6 weeks of core stability exercise on pain, and trunk endurance muscles were investigated in girl’s students with chronic low back pain. Materials and Methods: A total of 18 patients with a mean age, (24/11±0/31 years), height,(155/42 ±0/003 cm) and weight, (67/59±4/50 kg), were selected among all recalling student that volunteered for this study in Birjand University, and then randomly divided in two groups, as training (10 subjects), and control (8 subjects) groups . The pain levels and trunk muscles endurance were measured by Quebec back pain questionnaire, Sit- up and Sorensen, test respectively. The core stabilization exercises were exerted on a regular basis within six weeks of each 3 sessions a week, each session was conducted for about 45 minutes. For statistical analysis, the Kolmogorov - smirnov normality test, Pearson correlation and T test were used. Results: the results showed, a significant reduction in pain levels, significant increase in trunk muscle endurance (P˂0/05), however, no significant difference was found between two groups. Conclusion: it can be stated that the core stabilization exercises, can be used for reduction of the pain, and it can be considered as a suitable exercise for treatment of low back pain.
