Participants are allocated to the exercise group will commence the personalized core training exercise with EMG biofeedback based on their testing results in muscle quality.
Behavioral: personalized core muscle training program
Participants are allocated to the exercise group will commence the personalized core training exercise with EMG biofeedback based on their testing results in muscle quality. The program will run for 3 months with patients attending for one hour three times a week. The age-matched control group will maintain their usual daily life activities without any specific instruction. The exercise training will be run by an experienced physiotherapist, who will encourage patients individually to progress at their own pace.
