Low back pain is one of the main causes of work disability in Mexico, conservative treatment includes performing exercises.


To assess the effects of lower back pain with a controlled exercise program to improve flexibility and strength in the core or center of the body.

Material and methods:

We included 18 people, 12 women and six men between 24 and 70 years of age, with low back pain, with a score of 2 to 10 using the visual analogue scale (VAS), with or without referred pain in the lower limb. Participants were advised to refrain from taking medications, alcohol and intense physical activities during the treatment period. The participants carried out 12 sessions of 10 exercises in 3 sets of 10 repetitions, 3 times per week, evaluating: weight, distance toes, anterior rectum strength, abdominal diameter, initial and final Oswestry index.


The results were analyzed with the Wilcoxon test, showing a decrease not only in pain (p < 0.01), but an improvement in weight, flexibility and perception of disability due to the Oswestry scale (p < 0.01) showing that the series of exercises proposed is an alternative to the management of low back pain.


It is recommended the presence of a therapist who accompanies and corrects the postures so that the exercises are performed well, as well as giving value to the degree of disability caused by pain in the daily performance of the people who present it.
