    Low back pain (LBP) is the most common health problem and almost people are suffered of life span, however, the etiology remains unclear. Mobilization and manipulation therapies are widely used to benefit patients with chronic low back pain. Objective:To evaluate the effectiveness of spinal mobilization at reducing intensity of pain and disability compared in chronic LBP patients. Materials & Methods: This prospective study was conducted in the Department of Physiotherapy in a tertiary care hospital, India. A total of 100 chronic low back pain subjects with were participated in this study. The participants were randomly assigned into two equal groups with 50 participants in each group. The experimental group received spinal mobilization therapy. Results:The mean age among experimental group was 35.6 and among control group 24.3 years, statistically significant difference (p<0.05). Male predominance was found in both cases and control group. Mean BMI in experimental group and control group were 24.9 and 23.8 kg/m2 respectively. Statistically significant difference was found in pre and post spinal mobilisation group (p<0.05). Spinal mobilisation therapy reduces intensity of chronic LBP. Conclusions: Spinal mobilization technique significantly reduces LBP; it is a effective intervention for management of chronic low back pain.
