Abstract
Low back pain can be defined as any form of pain, muscle tension, or stiffness localized between the costal margins and the inferior gluteal folds, with or without radiation into the lower limbs. Objective: To compare the effectiveness of Lumbar stabilization exercises, IFT and McKenzie exercises, IFT in patients with low back pain. Method: The Study Design as Experimental study, Study Setting is done at Physiotherapy outpatient department, Saveetha Medical hospital, Chennai. Simple Randomized sampling technique is used and the total sample size is 40. Materials required for the study are stop watch and interferential unit. Statistical analysis: To all parameters mean & standard deviation (SD) were used. Paired t-test was used to analyze significant changes between pre-test & post-test measurements. Unpaired t-test was used to analyze significant changes between two groups. Results: The post-test mean value of VAS in Group-A is 4.40 cm with SD 1.10 and post-test mean value of VAS in Group-B is 2.26 cm with SD 1.15, this shows that Group-A is greater than Group-B with the P value (0.0001). The post-test mean value of MODI in Group-A is 20.60 % with SD 4.33 and post-test mean value of MODI in Group-B is 18.10 % with SD 4.55, this shows that Group-A is greater than Group-B with the P value (0.0001).Conclusion: This study shows better improvement in reducing low back pain in lumbar stabilization exercises, than mckenzie exercises. Both the techniques are equal in their clinical effectiveness in reducing low back pain and either of the techniques used in clinical practice

Key words: To all parameters mean & standard deviation (SD) were used. Paired t-test was used to analyze significant changes between pre-test & post-test measurements. Unpaired t-test was used to analyze significant changes between two groups.
