Abstract

Background: Patients with nonspecific low back pain have difficulty in their activities of daily living. Spinal

flexibility problems are neglected in the patients with low back pain. These problems hampers the activities

of daily living. Hence this study will help in improving their flexibility and perform ADL easily. Numerous

studies have been done on spinal muscle strengthening, muscle activation to improve muscle endurance and

posture in patients with low back pain but less attention has been given to spinal flexibility, which will help

them to perform their ADL with ease. Low back pain is a big burden, as it causes more global disability

and it is increasing among young individuals. There is paucity of studies as far as abdominal exercises in

improving spinal flexibility is concerned.

Aim: To find the effect of abdominal drawing in maneuver and lumbar pelvic exercises on swiss ball among

patients with non-specific low back pain.

Methodology: There were 35 participants in the study. The type of study is experimental. The participants

involved were assessed for strength, pain and functional mobility. The participants are treated for pain,

strength and functional mobility.

Result: There is improvement seen in participants. The results of the participants are calculated by mean

and standard deviation. The post mean value of lumbar flexion was 5.926 which was more than pre mean

value of lumbar flexion that is 5.558. The post mean value of lumbar extension was 1.378 which was more

than pre mean value of lumbar extension that is 1.243. The post mean value of right lumbar lateral flexion

was 5.565 which was more than pre mean value of right lumbar lateral flexion that is 5.121. The post mean

value of left lumbar lateral flexion was 5.578 which was more than pre mean value of left lumbar lateral

flexion that is 5.578.

Conclusion: : Abdominal drawing in maneuver and lumbar pelvic exercises on swiss ball are effective in

improving spinal flexibility among patients with non-specific low back pain.
