Abstract

BACKGROUND: Recent focus for the patients with chronic non-specific low back pain has been applying manual therapy techniques to attain immediate effects on pain, range of motion, quality of life, etc. Manual therapy techniques were beneficial for patients with chronic non-specific low back pain (CNLBP) both in reducing the symptoms of pain and in improving the function. Manual therapy trails were under process to attain maximum recovery from chronic non-specific low back pain. PURPOSE: The purpose of the present study was to compare McKenzie exercises enriched with Muscle energy technique and McKenzie exercises enriched with Strain counter strain technique in patients with CNLBP. METHODS: Thirty patients (male and female) with age ranging between 20 and 50 years, with CNLBP were assigned randomly to two equal treatment groups. The first group (n=15) underwent a four weeks program of Muscle Energy technique along with McKenzie technique treatment. The second group (n=15) underwent a four weeks program of Strain Counter Strain technique along with McKenzie technique treatment. Outcome measures include pain intensity; lumbar flexion & extension range of movements, functional disability and quality of life were measured. RESULTS: After intervention the present study revealed that patients in both groups showed statistical significance (p < 0.05) differences in all outcome measures between pre test and post test values of Group A and Group B. There is no statistical significance (p > 0.05) difference in lumbar flexion range of motion, function disability and quality of life level between both groups and there is a significant difference (p < 0.05) inpain intensity level and lumbar extension range of motion in patients with CNLBP. CONCLUSION: The current results proved that both Muscle energy technique and Strain counter strain technique along with McKenzie technique are effective in reducing pain, increasing lumbar flexion & extension range of motion, functional disability and quality of life in patients with CNLBP.
