In this study, 15 female patients participated aged between 30 and 50 years with low back pain, sciatic pain, and lumbar lordosis. Lumbar lordosis angle (flexible ruler) and pain (McGill questionnaire) of patients before and after 8 weeks of exercise were evaluated. Data were analyzed using t-test (P<0.05). In this study, no significant difference was found in lumbar lordosis angle of sciatica patients before (± 0.1 43.2) and after the exercises (0.8 ± 34.2) (p<0.05).Significant difference was observed in pain perceptions between the before (0.8 ± 2.6) and after exercises (0.5± 1.8), emotional perceptions of pain between before (0.26 ± 1.4) and after exercises (0.3 ± 1.9) and various pain perceptions between before (0.6 ± 2.2) and after exercises (0.2 ± 1.5) (P<0.05).
