Background: Non-specific low back pain is a burdensome condition affecting lives. Non-specific kind of pain means that the basis of the pain is not identifiable. Low back pain arrives anywhere in the region from below the 12th rib to the inferior gluteal folds.

Objective: To conduct a comparative analysis between Lumbar Stabilization Exercises (LSE) and Back School (BS) Program on subacute and chronic non-specific low back pain. Lumbar Stabilisation Exercises are designed to stabilize the lumbar area and strengthen the core muscles. Back School Program is a holistic approach to reduce back pain which comprises of educational counselling, postural and ergonomic advice and exercises.

Materials and Methodology: Two groups are made, each group had 10 subjects. Group A received LSE and Group B received BS program. Both the groups also underwent conventional treatment. This design permitted us to check the specific impact of Lumbar Stabilization Exercises and the Back School Program along with the conventional treatment provided. Ten sessions of the treatment were given. Outcome measures include Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale (QBPDS) and ROM was measured.

Results: Lumbar stabilization exercises demonstrated greater efficacy than the Back School Program in diminishing sub-acute and chronic nonspecific low back pain.

Conclusion: Lumbar Stabilization Exercises are comparatively more effective than the Back School Program in reducing sub-acute and chronic nonspecific low back pain.
