|Official Title:||Efficacy of Motor Control Exercises and Resistance Training on Pain, Function, Kinesiophobia and Trunk Strength in Individuals With Non-specific Chronic Low Back Pain|

|Active Comparator: Motor Control||
Other: Motor control exercises
Motor control exercises for the deep trunk muscles in patients with chronic low back pain is based on evidence of motor control dysfunction, including delayed onset of activity in the transversus abdomens and internal oblique abdominal muscles and segmental hypertrophy of the lumbar multifidus muscle.
|Experimental: Resistance Training||
Other: Resistance training exercises
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
- Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) [ Time Frame: One day ]In a Numerical Rating Scale (NRS), patients are asked to circle the number between 0 and 10, 0 and 20 or 0 and 100 that fits best to their pain intensity. Zero usually represents 'no pain at all' whereas the upper limit represents 'the worst pain ever possible'.
- Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RDQ) [ Time Frame: One day ]Questionnaires to measure and monitor changes in functional outcome in patients with LBP. The RDQ evaluates 24 activity limitations due to LBP, while the ODI consists of 10 items assessing the level of pain interference with physical activities.
- Tampa Scale for Kinesiophobia (TSK) [ Time Frame: One day ]Measures the excessive, irrational, and debilitating fear of movement and activity resulting from a feeling of vulnerability to painful injury or re-injury. Its a 17-item scale.
- Trunk Muscle strength [ Time Frame: One day ]This outcome will be assessed by a isokinetic dynamometer. Today dynamometry routinely assesses muscle performance in healthy and symptomatic populations.
