Abstract: Lumbar radiculopathy is described as lower back pain that radiates to the lower limb along a specific lumbar nerve due to a pathological process like inflammation or mechanical compression of that nerve root. The main causes of it are nerve root foraminal stenosis or lumbar disc prolapse squeezing the nerve root. It’s most common in medical profession especially in physiotherapist. Exercises were used as a treatment in earlier research. This study uses modalities such as low level laser and lumbar traction for treating Lumbar radiculopathy. Musculoskeletal diseases including back pain can be treated with low level laser treatment (LLLT). It produces no vibrations, noise, or heat. It is also known as bio stimulation or photobiology. In addition to acting as an anti-inflammatory, LLLT is thought to influence how elastic tissue cells (fibroblasts) operate. Lumbar traction is described as diversion or partition of the vertebral bodies, the diversion and cruising of the facet joints, the tensed muscles of the labra structures of the spinal segment, the broadening of the intervertebral foramen, the straightening of the spinal curves, and the stretching of the spinal musculature. Hence the main purpose of the study is to establish the effectiveness of low level laser therapy versus mechanical traction for treating lumbar radiculopathy among physiotherapist.
