This study will focus on the effectiveness of BOSU ball exercises on non-specific low back pain in young adults who are experiencing pain and disability since 12 weeks or more. In this study an attempt has been made to discuss BOSU ball exercises that are focused on strengthening the core including the deep trunk muscles as well as improving balance.
Bosu ball exercises help in improvement of the strength of core muscles and help in changing the anterior pelvic tilt that causes increased wear and strain on the facet joint which is the common source of pain in the lower back, balancing the centre of gravity posteriorly and prevent extension of the stomach wall which helps in relieving long term pain leading to chronicity.
Methodology: Young adults having chronic non-specific low back pain including male and female were selected. These subjects performed 6 BOSU ball exercises for 4 weeks;3 sessions per week on alternate days.
The pre-treatment data and post-treatment data were collected and compared to evaluate the significance of the treatment.
Procedure: the effect of BOSU ball exercises to be observed on pain and disability caused by chronic non‐specific low back pain at the end of 4 weeks.
Statistical tool: Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Oswestry Low Back Disability questionnaire.
Conclusion: This concluded that BOSU ball exercises have been shown to have a significant effect on chronic non-specific low back pain and disability in young adults after 4 weeks of treatment.
