Objective: the study aimed to find out the effect of endurance exercises on trunk extensor muscles endurance and pain. Methods: Total 38 subjects of both genders ranging in age between 18 to 40 years suffering from subacute non specific low back pain were taken and equally divided into two groups, group A(control group) and group B (experimental group).The values of VAS and modified Biering Sorensen test were taken from each subject prior to the intervention. Then subjects of both groups received hot pack for 15 minutes and then group A received general mobility exercises including stretching and strengthening exercises of lumbar spine, and group B received 5 levels of endurance exercises for 5 times a week for consclutively 3 weeks. The values of VAS and modified Biering Sorensen test were again measured on 8th, 15th and 22nd day. Results: Comparison of baseline values of both groups showed a highly significant improvement in pain and endurance. Conclusion: Both trunk extensors endurance training and general mobility stretching strengthening exercises are equally effective in reducing pain and increasing endurance in patients with non-specific subacute low back pain.
