Core stability exercises have become one of the fitness trend broadly used exercises for low back pain.   Materials   and   Methods:   47   patients,   having      BMI   more   than   30,   both   males   and   females   and   age   between   18-45   years,   of   low   back   pain   were   taken.   All   the patients   were   assessed   for   pain   and   level   of   disability   with   Visual   analogue   scale   and   Oswestry   disabilty   questionnaire.   After   the   baseline   assessment,   all the   patients   were   conveniently   divided   into   two   equal   groups,   Group   A   and   Group   B.   Group   A   received   conventional      physiotherapy   whereas      Group   B received      core   stability      exercises   along   with   conventional   physiotherapy.   The   subjects   were   reassessed   after   completion   of   8   weeks   of   intervention.   The purpose of the study was to determine the Role of core stability exercises in Obese Individuals with Low Back Pain:  A Prospective Study. Result   &   Conclusion:    It   can   be   concluded   that   both   conventional   physiotherapy   as   well   as   addition   of   core   stability   exercises   are   effective   in   obese individuals   with   low   back   pain   but   addition   of   core   stability   exercise   has   much   more   remarkable   effect   than   conventional   physiotherapy   alone   on   low   back pain in obese patients. Hence core stability exercises is an integral part of physiotherapy regime for accurate and efficient management of low back pain KEY WORDS:    Low Back Pain, Core Stability Exercises, Level of Disability, Pain.
