But during these times, control group did not participate in any treatment activity and performed normal daily activities. Pain (Visual Analog Scale), and quality of life (quality of Life Questionnaire SF-36), of samples were evaluated before and after eight weeks of training. For data analysis, analysis of variance model with repeated measurement or Man-Whitney u or Wilcoxon tests were employed value ≤0.05 was used as statistically significant.
