Sumyyah Hasina Sana


Abstract: Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is the leading cause of Disability Adjusted Loss Of Years (DALYS) globally. It is the most prevalent musculoskeletal condition in the developed nations. Majority of Unani scholars have described low back pain (Waja al Zahr) under the broad heading of Waja al mafasil. In Unani system of medicine Waja al Zahr is described as a disease in which pain arises from internal and external muscles, ligaments surrounding the lumbar and lumbosacral region. The present study was carried out to assess the percentage of patients complaining of CLBP among socioeconomically deprived population of a village Ganstan of Bandipora Kashmir. The study participants were 326 patients. Amongst the study participants 218 were males and 108 were females.78.88 % were working in the fields of agriculture followed by 15.95 % house wives. Male gender, occupations related to labourers working in fields, weavers among certain participants were the most important determinants. Different response strategies are needed to practice that are pervasive in low income countries for minimising and prevention of disability due to CLBP.
