Description of intervention(s) / exposure
We'll suggest two different exercise programs to the treatment of low back pain. Wii fit program is based in some Wii Fit games such as warrior pose, ski slalom or single leg lift. To play this games you need to do some movements like flexion, extension and stretching of the low back muscles. 2 individual sessions per week will be made with a duration of 20 minutes, for 4 weeks. Sessions are conducted by a qualified physiotherapist. The program will be done at the hospital, so we can monitor adherence and also we can control that the exercises are done correctly.
