Method and Materials: This study was a school-based clinical trial among 104 fifth grade female students. The intervention group (N = 52) received six training sessions once a week and the control group (N=52) did not receive any intervention. Data was collected using the self-reported questionnaire include demographic information and back care knowledge at baseline, immediately, 3- and 6-months follow-ups. Data were analyzed using SPSS software
version 24. Descriptive analysis, chi-square test, independent t-test. repeated measure analysis of variance and Friedman test were applied to evaluate the results. Significance level was set at p ≤ 0.05.
Findings: The results demonstrated that there was a significant interaction between ‘group’ and ‘test time’ factors (p < 0.001), with higher score for the intervention group (36.4%improvement for the knowledge test score). By contrast, the control group didn’t have  significant higher mean score of knowledge from the pre-test to follow-up assessments.
Conclusion: The effectiveness of intervention on back care related knowledge was demonstrated in this study. Further evaluation is required to examine other determinants of promoting back-related behavior.
