Introduction & Objective: There is limited evidence on chronic low back patients' perception and satisfaction of the treatment with spinal stabilization exercises and their overall experience of the treatment program. The objective of this study was to evaluate the satisfaction level of patients with mechanical nonspecific chronic low back pain after participating in a stability training program.

Materials & Methods: At first, a methodological study was designed to develop a satisfaction questionnaire, and then content validity and test-retest reliability of it were determined. All patients (n=43) participated in a stability training program within a randomized controlled trial. Finally they filled in satisfaction questionnaire.

Results: Distribution of demographic variables were normal (P>0.43). 53.5% of the patients had solitary type occupations. 58.1% had history of sport activities. Also, pain location and extension in 46.5% and 65.2% were in lumbar region only. After stability training program, pain decreased (p<0.001) and functional ability as Oswestry and Quebec scales scores increased (p<0.002) significantly. Overall score of satisfaction questionnaire was 16±4.07.

Conclusion: Patients with chronic mechanical low back pain were satisfied after participation in stability training program. Pain reduction and better functional ability may be two factors contributing to the satisfaction of these patients.
