Abstract

BACKROUND OF THE STUDY: Low back pain is a leading cause of disability. It occurs in similar proportions in all cultures, interferes with quality of life and work performance and is the most common reason for medical consultations. Only a few cases of back pain are due to specific causes; most cases are non-specific. Low back pain may results from trauma, osteoporotic fractures, infection, neoplasm’s and other mechanical derangements. METHODOLOGY: In this experimental study, 30 patients with Piriformis syndrome were selected and divided into two groups. One group was given only Piriformis stretching for the tightened muscle and the other group given Mulligan mobilization for lumbo sacral joints. VAS and oswestry disability index were taken to compare before and after the treatment regime of 4 weeks. The baseline measurement was compared to the Data. RESULTS: Both the groups had decrease of pain in VAS score, but the group A had more decrease of pain and improvement in function. In both the groups, the statistical result was found to be P<0.0001 which means there is a significant differences between the two groups. CONCLUSION: This study found that the reduction of pain and improvement of function were seen in both the groups but the Mulligan’s Mobilization in group A was more effective than Stretching i.e. group B.
