Abstract

ABSTRACT: Exercise is the most effective treatment for the management and prevention of spinal pain, yet on average it delivers small to moderate treatment effects, which are rarely long-lasting. This review examines the hypothesis that outcome of exercise interventions can be optimized when targeted towards the “right” patients and when tailored to address the neuromuscular impairments of each individual.
