The low back pain is common problem shown in lumbar disc herniation. It produces pain in the lower back or leg especially in adult person.

Non-randomize sampling technique & semi-structured questionnaire was used to collect the data. Subjects were divided into equal 2 groups. (Group-A. applied intermittent mechanical traction) and (Group-B. Applied Manual traction) The mean age of the respondents was (14 ± 8.485) and (30-49) year's age group felt more pain and most of the respondents (83%) were male and weight were 66-70 kg. Day labour worker groups were 50% and worked daily average 5-8 hours and more of the respondent 67% carried over weight objects around 30 kg. most of the respondent 67% was no history of trauma and 43% of the respondent felt moderate types of pain and 44% of the respondents feels radiating nature of pain. More of the respondent 40% felt pain least 6 months Most of the respondent 67% felt pain during work and 83% visited doctor and 63% taken self-treatment before doctor visit. The statistical analysis of paired t test with14 degrees of freedom and 5% as level of significant. The pre and post test value value for VAS scale showed in intermitten mechanical traction group "t" value were 16.60 and manual traction group "t" value were 3.27 and tabulated t value were 2.145. The mean ± SD of pre and posttest value of Group A were 7.73±1.38 & 1.35±0.57 and Group B were 7.87±1.40 & 5.45 ± 2.50. Analysis of data showed that within-group comparison both groups showed significant improvement for all the parameters, whereas between-group c [...]
