Abstract


INTRODUCTION: “The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance”. Low back pain is the most
common cause of pain in the United States resulting in substantial morbidity, disability, and cost to society. An estimated
5% to 10% of US adults experience chronic low back pain (LBP).Individuals from low-income minority backgrounds with LBP may be
disproportionately affected due to disparities in access to treatment. For example, minorities have less access to analgesic prescriptions, surgery,
and intensive rehabilitation. Many LBP patients seek relief using complementary therapies such as yoga. Yoga originated over 2000 years ago in
India as a system of physical, moral, and spiritual practices. Hatha yoga is one branch of yoga consisting of physical postures (asanas), breathing
techniques (pranayama), and meditation. Although yoga use by adults in the United States increased to more than 6% in 2007.it is less common
among minorities and individuals with lower incomes or education. Several studies of yoga for LBP in predominantly white middle-class
populations suggest it may be effective for reducing pain and improving function.
Materials and Methods: Quantitative research approach & True Experimental pre-test & post-test control group design was used. Sample was
60 postnatal LSCS mothers from selected maternity hospitals. Were selected by using simple random sampling technique. Level of LBP was
measure by giving yoga therapy followed that LBP level was measure with the help of low back pain scale& a ndings was recorded and the
result were evaluated through OSWESTRY LBP scale. The data was analysed using chi-square test.
Result: control group out of 30 samples,0(0%) of having mild pain,19(63.33%) of having moderate pain. 11(36.67%) of having severe pain. In
experimental group out of 30samples 15(50.00%) of having mild pain, 15(50.00%) of having moderate pain and 0(0.00%) of having severe pain.
Finding also suggested that there was a signicant association between LBP & demographic variables.(P value 0.01).
Conclusion: yoga therapy is effectiveness on low back pain for postnatal LSCS mothers.
