Proprioceptive training has been shown to be effective in increasing the efficiency of motor-sensory tissues that stabilize the trunk. The investigators hypothesis is that proprioceptive support do influence in the activation of the transversus abdominis muscle (TrA) during segmental stabilization training.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Activation of transversus abdominis [ Time Frame: Two Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Activation of transverus abdominis will be assessed by the biofeedback pressure unit.Pressure biofeedback units consist of a combined inflation bulb connected to a pressure cell.
