Pre test readings of pain by NPRS, Functional disability by Modified Oswestry low back pain and disability index scale and lumbar flexibility by sit and reach test of patients in both the groups were taken before the intervention. Group-A received clinical Pilate’s exercises protocol and Group-B received McKenzie exercises protocol for 45 min/day, two sessions per week for 4 week.

Results: According to data analysis, the t value of NPRS, ODI, Lumbar Flexibility are 3.944 (p<0.05), 2.298 (p<0.05), 9.181 (p<0.05) respectively.

Conclusion and clinical signification: The study concludes that Clinical Pilates exercises and McKenzie exercises both are equally significant in reducing pain and disability but clinical Pilates exercises is more significant in improving the flexibility in Non-Specific low backache patient.
