Aim And Objectives: This study is done to find out the additional effect of Mulligan Segmental Traction with conventional therapy on pain by visual analogue scale (VAS) and function by Modified Oswestry disability questionnaire (MODQ) in chronic mechanical low back pain Methodology: total 24 subjects (12 in each group) having chronic Mechanical LBP were recruited. 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.
