Objective To determine the relative effectiveness of mulligan bent leg raising compared to slump stretching in the treatment of patient with low back pain.

Materials and Method: This study was conducted on physically active subject of low back pain. They were randomly assigned into two equal groups. The pre-test measurements were taken for both the groups for range of passive SLR and Pain. The group A got Mulligan BLR and group B got slump stretching for the period of 4 weeks. After the end of 4 weeks post test measurement taken as similar to the pre-test measurement and the result obtained were compared.

Result: Results of the study shows that both the techniques MBLR and SLUMP are effective in reducing pain and alter the ROM of PSLR. However MBLR group shows greater improvement in pain and ROM of PSLR, then the SLUMP group in patient with Low Back Pain.

Conclusion: According to the results of present study MBLR tech is significantly reduce pain and improve ROM of PSLR then the slump technique. Improvement of pain and PSLR range, by the MBLR technique, might be due to mobilization of the painful, sensitized, nerve tissues.
