Objective: Low back pain (LBP) has considered the most common problem worldwide. The purpose of this study was to see the comparative efficacy of lumbar stabilization exercises versus Mulligan mobilization in LBP. Materials and Methods: This randomized controlled trial was conducted at Physiotherapy Department of Mayo Hospital, Lahore. Forty-four patients were randomly selected in two groups. Group A patients were treated by stabilization exercises. Group B patients were treated by Mulligan mobilization protocol. Results: The participants in Mulligan mobilization group showed marked improvement as compared to stabilization exercise group. Conclusion: It was concluded from the results of this study that Mulligan mobilization is more effective than stabilization exercises for the treatment of LBP. Mulligan mobilization not only decreases pain but also improves function and flexibility of the spine.
