Background and Objectives: There is consensus on the use of exercise therapy and exercise for control, prevention, and treatment of patients with low back pain. But considering the diversity of exercise therapy methods, the effect of these exercises has not yet been studied. In this study, the effect of 8 weeks of Barre au sol exercises was investigated on levels of pain and trunk muscle endurance in women with chronic low back pain.
 
Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 30 female patients (aged 20-40 years) with chronic low back pain, who referred to therapeutic and physiotherapy centers of the 3rd district of Isfahan, were selected in convenient and purposeful manner in the second half of 2015, and randomly assigned to two groups of (Bare au sol exercise, n=15) with the mean age of 28.86 years; Height, 161.87cm, weight, 69.12kg, and BMI, 26.88 and control (conventional therapy and physiotherapy N=15) with the mean age of 28.20 years; Height, 169.12cm; weight, 69.76; and BMI, 26.60. Before and after the study period, endurance of the trunk extensor muscles and pain intensity, were measured by Biering Sorensen Test and Visual Analog Scale questionnaire, respectively. Barre au sol exercises were regularly performed during 8 weeks, 3 sessions per week and each session lasted about one hour.
 
Results: After 8 weeks of exercises, a significant decrease in pain level (t=80.17, p=0.000) and a significant increase in the trunk muscles endurance (t=61.10, p=0.000), were observed.
 
Conclusion: The results of this research indicated that Barre au sol exercises have the potential to reduce complications caused by low back pain; therefore, It can be used as a therapeutic method for patients with low back pain.
