Clinical Trial Summary

Low back pain is a common condition affecting many individuals at some point in their lives.The prevalence of Non-specific low back pain (LBP) is between 4.2% and 19.6%, which is responsible for high treatment costs, sick leave, and individual suffering, in addition to being one of the main reasons for people to seek health care services. LBP prevalence increases linearly from the third decade of life on, until the 60 years of age, being more prevalent in women.This trial will be a prospective, parallel, double blinded, randomized, interventional clinical trial (comparing Myofascial Release and Joint Mobilization therapy). The patients will be screened by researcher and randomly allocated into either experimental groups. After recruitment, the person will be contacted for allocation so that randomization will be secured and concealed. The participants and therapist providing treatment will not be blinded but the assessor and the biostatistician will be blinded. The outcome measure tools for data quantification will be used i.e. Diagnostic Ultrasound Scanner to measure lumbar multifidis and transversus abdominis muscle thickness, pain pressure algometer to measure pain pressure sensitivity and Halo-digital inclinometer to measure range of motion of the lumbar region.Sample size of 45 will be calculated using G. power software with 12% attrition rate. Patientswill be randomly allocated in 3 groups (Group A, Joint mobilization: Group B, Myofascial Release: Group C, both joint mobilization and myofascial release: Common treatment, Heating for 15 minutes). Each group will receive 4 sessions of treatment in 2 weeks' period on Day 1st day 4th, day 8th and day 12th.Data will be collected on Day 1st; Pre and post-treatment, Day 4th, Day 8th,Day 12th; post treatment and after 1 month. Data will be analyzed with SPSS version.21. Study will be conducted in Al-Razi Healthcare, Shalamar Hospital and Riphah Rehabilitation Centre, Lahore, Pakistan. The duration of study will be 18 months after the approval of synopsis.
