Abdul Rahman, Muhammad Hashim, Danish Hassan, Muhammad Ihsan, Hira Ali.

Abstract
Objective: To compare the effectiveness of Mckenzie therapy with and without strain counter strain technique in patients with non-specific low back pain.
Methodology: This quasi-experimental trial included 32 participants from Snabil Health Services Lahore and Jinnah Hospital Lahore who were randomly selected and categorized into two groups using a convenient sampling technique. Mckenzie treatment was given to Group A, while Mckenzie treatment with Strain Counter strain was given to Group B. Roland-Morris questionnaire, Numeric pain rating scale (NPRS), and Bubble inclinometer were used to measure disability, pain, and lumbar range of motion, and readings were noted at pretreatment, after the second week and fourth week of treatment.
Results: The mean difference of NPRS between group A and group B was 0.062 and 0.00, respectively at baseline, after post treatment week two and post treatment week four.
Conclusion: Mckenzie treatment combined with strain counters train was as beneficial as Mckenzie treatment alone in relieving low back pain.

Key words: Mckenzie therapy, low back pain, disability, manual therapy.
