Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most current causes to physical functions, psychological stress, and economy. Clinical practice guidelines for LBP can be divided into three main categories; education, drug therapy, and non-medical intervention. The recent guidelines recommend the use of exercise for the management of LBP problems. Hydrotherapy is an alternative exercise program to achieve rehabilitation for LBP. Water properties include buoyancy, viscosity and hydrostatic pressure, which can be applied with stretching, strengthening and endurance exercise. Hydrotherapy exercise procedures consist of warm up, exercise and cool down phase. This program can reduce the risk of injury and disability due to safer and low risks.
