In this study, we will compare exercise execution between two groups of patients: (1) individuals who undergo instruction session by a PT and then perform exercises with a written handout at home and (2) individuals who use the mHealth motion coach at home. Participants will perform the same 4 exercises. Both groups will be instructed to exercise at home, supported either by the handouts or the Motion Coach technology and then return after 1 week for assessment.
For the assessment, standardized videos will be used to capture pose during exercise execution. Group 1 will perform the exercises with the written handout; group 2 will perform the exercises with the motion coach. Rating will be performed by a panel of PT professionals on the overall assessment of each exercises and on the three segments mentioned below that are exercise specific. The first group with PT instruction and written handout portion will be compared to the second group with the motion coach.

|Active Comparator: Exercise Instruction by PT and written handout||
Other: Physiotherapist Exercise Instructions and written handouts
Participants will be instructed by physiotherapists in exercise execution and receive handouts and exercise for one week
|Experimental: Exercise Instruction by Motion Coach Technology||
Other: Kaia Back Pain App
The Kaia Back Pain App provides instructions on exercise execution to participants for one week
- Scoring of each individual exercise rated by a panel of physiotherapists [ Time Frame: 7 days ]A panel of 5 physiotherapists each rates every repetition recorded as acceptable or not. If greater than 90% are rated as acceptable, the exercise will be assessed as acceptable.
- Rating of exercise execution concerning specific body regions by physiotherapists [ Time Frame: 7 days ]For predefined segments for every exercise, a panel of physiotherapists scores execution quality on a scale of 0-3
