Why is it important?

There is a lack of reports about the results of PFM exercise when added to SE. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to explore the effect of SE combined with PFM exercise in women with nonspecific LBP compared to SE alone.


The current study was the first research work that illustrated the SE combined with PFM exercise improved the back muscle endurance more than SE alone in women with nonspecific LBP.
