Low back pain is one of the most common disorders for athletes. In the field of athletic training, various theories and methods of core stabilization exercises have been produced and verified whether it is effective for prevention of low back disorders and performance improvement. In this article, author reviewed clinical and scientific evidence about prevention of low back disorders for athletes. In the fact, there are few reports of well-designed research about the pain prevention of low back in the study of athletes. Although the evidence is low, some reports showed that re-education of deep trunk muscles (such as transversus abdominis and multifidus, etc.) and motor control training are effective in preventing the worsening or recurrence of low back pain in athletes. In the future, high-quality research is needed to verify both performance improvement and low back disorders prevention.
