Introduction: Segmental stability and mobility control of the core body as well as flexibility of the body parts accentuate peak performance and prevent musculoskeletal injury. Pilates is an exercise program as a core stability approach to augment the neuromuscular system to control and protect the core body or spine. Since a Pilates approach focuses on core body exercise and breathe control, it facilitates activation of core muscles. Incorporation of these muscles contributes to stability of the lumbopelvic region. Methodology: 56 study participants were advised to continue their normal routine activities and divided in to two groups. One group received Pilates exercises 45 min per sessions for 5 days in a week for 4 weeks. And the second group received only SHAM exercises Outcome measures lumbopelvic stability tests and lumbopelvic flexibility were taken at 0 day, after 2 weeks and after 4 weeks. Overall stability was assessed before and after the intervention. Results: For within-group analysis ANOVA test has been used. According to it, there is a statistical significant difference in Lumbopelvic stability test 1 (KLAT) and lumbopelvic flexibility in both the group and for lumbopelvic stability test 2 (BKFOT) group A is statistically significant but group B is not statistically significant and for post hoc test in group A, all 3 tests are significant at all levels and for group B, lumbopelvic stability test 1 and lumbopelvic flexibility is significant in pre and post level and not significant for lumbopelvic stability test 2. For between-group analyses independent t-test is used. According to it, group A is statistical significant than group B (Pless than0.05) Conclusion: In this study, the null hypothesis was rejected, hence the experimental hypothesis was accepted.
