Study Design: A randomized clinical trial. Background and Purpose: Several exercise programs have been reported to be beneficial in the treatment of low back pain (LBP). This study was to examine two different exercises, thoracolumbar exercise (TLE) and lumbar stabilizing exercise (LSE), for LBP. Methods: Ninety subjects (42 male, 48 female), who had mechanical LBP without other neurological symptoms, were exercised for 40 minutes, 3 times/week, for 8 weeks. This trial examined the Oswestry Disability Index, pain, static standing balance, thoracic mobility, and lumbar flexibility. Results: Subjects who participated in the TLE program were better than the LSE on the Oswestry Disability Index, thoracic mobility, and static standing balance. However, subject performances did not significantly differ in either exercise group in terms of pain and lumbar flexibility. Discussion: The TLE program has been demonstrated to be effective in patients with LBP in terms of lumbar functional disability including static standing balance.
