Introduction: Pain the lumbar region which starts below the ribs. Everyone experiences lower back ache at some
point in their life. In this research we analyzed lower back ache presentation and rehabilitation for different age
groups- 15-18 year, 18-25 year, 25-45 year, above 45years of age.
Methodology: Study Design: Experimental Study with sample size of 28 individuals with acute Low Back Pain
(LBP). Age ranges from 15-18 years, 18-25years, 25-45 years, above 45 years with inclusion criteria as follows:
People doing a desk job and working in front of screen for long hours (7-8 hrs.), No orthopedic disease that
might affect testing, those who can understand English language and children studying in school and college were
also included. Exclusion Criteria included conditions diagnosed with- P.I.V.D, structural scoliosis, neurological
conditions, metastasis of spine, inflammatory disorders affecting the lumbar spine, metabolic diseases, spinal
surgery, undergoing medical or physiotherapy intervention for LBP.
Results and Discussion: The population size was equally sub divided into four groups as per age. Age: 15-18 year
(Group A), 18-25 year (Group B), 25-45 year (Group C), above 45 years (Group D). One way anova test was
performed to calculate the inter and intra relations of different age groups and their pre and post data (VAS scale
and Schober’s test ). As a result, with the applied physiotherapy protocol (hydrocollator packs, crook lying, back
isometric exercise, knee to chest) in all groups for 4 weeks, the most benefited group was group A whereas for
flexion range of motion of lumbar spine the most benefited group was group C. The physiotherapy exercises
proved to be most beneficial for improving flexion range of motion of lumbar spine in GROUP C overall benefited
younger age group A.
