Abstract
Objective: To compare effectiveness of mechanical diagnosis and therapy approach designed by McKenzie along with core stabilization exercises in patients of Non-specific low back pain.
Methodology: A quasi-experimental trial was conducted from September 2018 to December 2019 on 50 non-specific low back pain patients. They were divided into two groups; Group A was treated with mechanical diagnosis and therapy technique along with conventional therapy while Group B was treated with core stabilization exercises along with conventional therapy. Each subject received 12 sessions, 4 times per week for 3 weeks. Pain was assessed via Numeric Pain Rating Scale & Lumbar Range of Motion via Bubble Inclinometer.
Results: Statistically significant differences were observed within group analysis as well as between groups. Numeric pain rating scale had p-value = 0.01 and Lumbar Range of motion had p -value <0.05, which was considered significant.
Conclusion: McKenzie Method of mechanical diagnosis & therapy approach along with conventional physiotherapy showed better results in reducing intensity of back pain along with improvement in lumbar Range of motion.

Key words: Low back pain, manual therapy, lumbar vertebrae.
