Abstract


Aim- The aim of study is to find out the efficacy of Mechanical lumbar traction with mc-kenzie exercises versus
mechanical lumbar traction in Subacute Non-specific low back pain patients.
Methodology- The number of subjects was 30 (n=30) with both males and females and randomly divided into 2 groups
(group A & group B).
Intervention- Group A received mechanical lumbar traction with mc-kenzie exercises and Group – B received
mechanical lumbar traction for 3 weeks (6 days/week).
Outcome measures- The pre & post readings of outcome measures Numeric pain rating Scale (NPRS) & Oswestry
Disabilty Index (ODI) was taken to find out the improvement in both the groups.
Result- Comparison of values of both the groups showed a highly significant in improving pain and decreasing in
disability.
Conclusion- It is concluded that Mechanical lumbar traction with Mc-kenzie exercises in group A and group B are
equally effective in reduction of low back pain, disability and increasing ROM.
