SMR reviews Core stability exercises in individuals with and without chronic nonspecific low back pain
It's an interesting study, and hopefully will be repeated with a larger treatment and control group. The authors conclude some of what I use in practice. If an individual can perform certain exercises without bracing, they don't have to. I find that bracing can be very useful if a patient cannot perform certain exercises or even simple ADLs like crossing their legs without pain. I also find that verbal and tactile cueing along with changing the intensity, whether it is too much, or not enough makes a difference. If bracing doesn't work, I try hollowing.
