Background: Lower back pain is a state of distress to the lumbar spine with or without manifestations to the distal points whose cause is often not known. Spinal decompression is an advanced modification of traction, a technique used to reduce disc pressure, to increase the intervertebral space and to regain the normal position and height of the disc.
Objective: The objective of this research was to determine the effects of Lumbar Decompression therapy in patients of lower back pain by using Oswestry pain scale questionnaire.
Methodology: It was a longitudinal study and information was gathered from population in Lahore and completed at KKT Orthopedic Spine Center Lahore. Total 136 patients were surveyed before the treatment (baseline) and after the treatment (6 sessions).
Total score on baseline was 42.7and total score after 6 sessions was 27.33. So, according to total Mean score after 6 sessions i.e 27.33, decompression is statistically effective.
Conclusion: Total means score after six sessions of treatment were less than at baseline. So lumbar decompression therapy is very effective in treating lower back pain.
