Abstract
Objective: To evaluate the effect of spinal decompression with and without segmental mobilization in improving pain, ROM, walking time and disability in patients with posterolateral lumbar disc protrusion.
Methodology: This RCT include 44 patients of lumbar disc bulge and were randomly assigned through coin toss method into two groups. The Experimental Group (n=23) received decompression therapy, Maitland mobilization of lumbar spine along with conventional treatment and the Control group (n=21) received decompression therapy and conventional physiotherapy. Both groups received two treatment sessions per week. Non-parametric tests was applied for the result.
Results: Comparison both groups showed significant improvement in MODI and NPRS with p<0.001 after 2 weeks of treatment. The experimental group showed significant improvement in lumbar spine range of motion (p<0.001). End values comparison of variables within groups showed significant improvement in lumbar ROM, NPRS and MODI (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Neuro spinal decompression therapy along with CPA Maitland mobilization was effective in reducing NPRS score, MODI and increase lumbar ROM.

Key words: CPA, MODI, Neuro decompression therapy, NPRS
