For chronic LBP, however, there was very low quality evidence that MCE helps reduce recurrence at one year. In addition, MCE were
shown to reduce pain compared to a minimal intervention (low-moderate quality evidence). There was no clinical difference between MCE and other exercises (low-high quality evidence) and an increased effectiveness of MCE over other interventions for pain and disability (very low-low quality evidence).
