LBP and core strengthening

I learned from past reading about the anatomy of the spine. Low back pain is a common ailment experienced by the population as a whole and specifically with the athletic population. Core strengthening is commonly recommended as a treatment and/or prevention method for low back pain. Please read the article entitled, "Hip muscle imbalance and low back pain in athletes: influence of core strengthening."


1. After reading this article, do you think we as human movement professionals are justified in prescribing core strengthening exercises for the prevention and/or treatment of low back pain? What do you think can be effective to apply in my professional practice as a personal trainer. I need another take on this article.

2. How do men and women differ in regards to low back pain? Why the difference?


3. I also need help to track down other articles that either support or don't support core strengthening for low back pain (at least 3, if possible). Thanks.
