Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study will be assess the effectiveness of the physical virtual training on nonspecific chronic low back pain, body balance, functional autonomy and mood of older women. Two groups will be formed. One will do strength exercises and core training. The other group will do the same exercises more virtual activities with Nintendo Wii. Will be measure pre and post-intervention of the responses already shown above.
