Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of visual feedback balance training program on improving postural control parameters in mechanical low back pain patients. Thirty male patients with mean age of 38±1.00 years compared to twenty gender, weight, height and age matched health subjects participated in this study. Patients were assigned randomly into two equal groups. Both groups received hot pack on the lower back and exercises program (strengthening and stretching) for two months as three sessions per week. One group (G2) also received visual feedback training using the Smart Balance Master system. The ability to control the center of gravity (deg./sec.) over the base of support during various support surface and visual conditions, gait measurements and sit-to-stand parameters were assessed pre and post treatment for all groups. Intensity of pain was recorded pre and post treatment for patients groups. The results of this study revealed an improvement in back pain for both groups after treatment program. The improvement in postural control parameters was significant in the group which received an additional visual feedback training program. It could be concluded that the visual feedback training is a useful modality that can be used to improve postural control in patients with chronic mechanical back pain.
