Abstract


AIM - TO compare the effectiveness of soft tissue Manipulation VS McKenzie exercise along with Lumbosacral
isometric exercise in patient with mechanical Low back pain.
METHOD- 30 participants with age group between 18-35 years were taken among which 15 subjects in each group
were selected (Group A & Group B). In Group A- 15 subjects were treated with Moist heat pack + soft tissue manipulation
with lumbosacral isometric exercise. In Group B- 15 Subjects were treated with Moist heat pack + mckenzie exercise with
lumbosacral isometric exercise. Outcome has been measured using Numeric Pain Rating Scale & Oswestry disability
questionnaire.
RESULT- In this study, 30 females were studied.There is a significant difference between pre & post scores of group &
group B. The paired 't' test was applied to find the significant difference between pre and post ODI and NPRS score in soft
tissue manipulation and McKenzie exercise group respectively which shows a significant difference in both groups
separately at 5% level of significance (p<.05)
CONCLUSION- The findings of the current study showed that both the group A & group B shows significiant
improvement in reduction of mechanical low back pain disability. But on comparing both intervention groups, group A
give better result than group B.
