Background and Objective: Non-specific chronic low back pain (NSLBP) is the most common type of chronic lower back pain. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of 8 weeks of core stability exercises via Swiss ball and Sling on pain and quality of life in women with NSLBP.
Materials and Methods:The subjects participated voluntarily (n=32, Age= 19 to 45 years) and were randomly divided into three groups: Swiss ball exercise (BE) group (n:11, Age:36.3 ± 7.2), Sling exercise (SE) group (n:11, Age:35.9 ± 8.1) and Control group (n:10, Age:32.9 ± 7.6), The BE group and the SE group performed their exercise protocols for 8 weeks and during this period, the control group did not engage in any exercise. Pain and quality of life (QOL) was assessed Pre and Post intervention using the Quebec pain questionnaire and quality of life questionnaire (SF-36) respectively. Data were analyzed using SPSS statistical software version 20.
Results: The results of Repeated Measures and Non-parametric tests showed that when comparing the two experimental groups and the control group, pain levels and the scale of physical and mental health were significantly different respectively (P=0/002, P<0/001 and P<0/001). A difference between the two experimental groups was not observed, however, the means of pain and the scale of physical and mental health from pre-test to post-test showed a greater difference in the SE group when compared to the BE group.
Conclusion: According to the results of this research and taking into account the low sample size, it is possible that despite the more altered means in the SE group, the 8 weeks of core stability exercises via Swiss ball and Sling had the same positive effect on low back pain in women with NSLBP.
