Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of trunk stabilization exercise using a gym ball with or without electromyography biofeedback for people with chronic low back pain.

Design: Pretest-posttest Experimental - control group design.

Method: 30 subjects were randomly assigned into two groups. Experimental group received trunk stabilization exercise along with the electromyography biofeedback whereas control group received trunk stabilization exercise without electromyography biofeedback. Endurance and Pain was measured at 0 week, 2nd week, 4th week and 6th week.

Results: Trunk stabilization exercise along with Electromyography biofeedback significantly improves the endurance and reduces pain. /

Conclusion: from the result we may conclude that trunk stabilization exercise along with the electromyography biofeedback is more effective than trunk stabilization exercise without electromyography biofeedback in rehabilitation of patient with chronic low back pain.
