The present study is to determine the effect of lumbosacral stabilization exercise program on back pain disorder and gait velocity of patients with chronic low back pain. The subject was extracted randomly from 34 patients with chronic low back pain and divided into 18 patients of experimental group and 16 patients of control group. Before the experiment, the Oswestry disability index examination and analysis of gait speed were performed. Then, a conventional interventional therapy of physiotherapy was performed with the experimental group along with the lumbosacral stabilization exercise while only the conventional interventional therapy was done to the control group. Both groups did the above treatment every 30 minutes, four times a week for four weeks. Then, post-examination was carried out followed by comparing the back pain disorder index and gait velocity before and after the experiment for the two groups. The back pain disorder index showed that both experimental and control groups had significant difference within the group (p>.01)(p>.05), With regard to the gait velocity, both experimental and control groups had a significant difference within the experimental group and between the groups (p>.001)(p>.05).
