Background: Mechanical low back pain is defined as pain secondary to over use of a normal structure. It is the most common medical complaint and affects most people at least once in their life time. Exercises for the lower back are an effective way to prevent and control back pain. Objective: To know the effect of McKenzie exercises in mechanical low back pain by using VAS scale, To know the effect of Williams exercises in mechanical low back pain by using VAS scale, To compare the effect of McKenzie exercises and Williams exercises in mechanical low back pain Methods: Total 30 patients diagnosed as mechanical back pain in age group of 18-40 were randomly selected from. Patients are divided into two groups as A & B. Each group consist of 15 patients. Group A is given Mckenzie exercise and Group B is given Williams exercises. In patient whose flexion is painful will be given Mckenzie extension exercises Conclusion: Based on statistical analysis, its interpretation and evidence in the present study strongly emphasis that Williams flexion exercises and McKenzie extension exercises are significantly effective in reducing mechanical low back pain.The study also emphasis that William’s flexion exercises are comparatively more beneficial in reducing mechanical low back pain than McKenzie extension exercises.
