Modalities of exercise training for treating low back pain

...is any modality of exercise superior to others?

This review found Pilates, stabilisation/ motor control, resistance training and aerobic exercise training as most effective for adults with nonspecific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) across the different analysed outcome measures.

However, this conclusion was only supported by low-quality evidence. On the contrary, stretching and McKenzie exercises showed no difference to control groups. The study also found that exercise training may be more effective than hands-on treatment.
