Systematic reviews were identified from several online databases including but not limited to: CENTRAL, MEDLINE and EMBASE. 29 trials were included in this review that compared the effectiveness of MCE on NSLBP with no treatment or with other interventions as a supplement.
Motor control exercise is often employed as an intervention, based on the assumption that patients presenting with NSLBP have altered control and stability of the spine. By restoring the activation and coordination of the deep trunk muscles, we can reduce the randomized pain in the low back and gluteal region. Due to the popularity of MCE being utilized in our treatment strategies for LBP, this study was produced to fill a knowledge gap incorporating new and existing literature.
