They were allocated into 2 Groups and group A is treated with Mulligan Segmental Traction along with conventional therapy and group B Received Only conventional therapy. Outcome Measures: VAS and MODQ RESULT: statistical analysis was done for within groups as well as between groups. In within group. In within groups statistically significant difference was found for VAS with paired t test (p=0.001) and for MODQ with Wilcoxon signed ranked test (p=0.002). In between groups statistically significant difference found for VAS with unpaired t test (p=0.001) and MODQ with Mann Whitnney U test (p=0.002). Conclusion: In this study adding Mulligan Segmental traction technique to conventional therapy is more effective in reducing pain and improving function in subjects with chronic mechanical low back pain.
