Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Exercise
spinal stabilization exercise program was applied
Behavioral: spinal stabilizaton exercise
In Exercise group, spinal stabilization exercise program was carried out 3 days a week for 8 weeks.

No Intervention: Control

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in musculoskeletal pain intensity as measured by Visual Analog Scale [ Time Frame: Change from baseline musculoskeletal pain intensity at 8 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in trunk muscle endurance as measued with McGill's trunk muscle endurance tests [ Time Frame: Change from baseline trunk muscle endurance at 8 weeks ]
  2. Change in postural stability as measured with Biodex Balance System SD [ Time Frame: Change from baseline postural stability at 8 weeks ]
