Non-specific low back pain is a common orthopedic problem which defies relief with available modes of treatment. The present study aims at analysis of 33 cases of non-specific low back pain treated by Yoga therapy. A majority of cases (75,8%) showed good response. Those with low back pain alone showed early and better response compared to those who had sciatic radiation. Yoga therapy being a holistic approach helps to strengthen the spinal musculature with relaxation of rest of the body and min, resulting in better quality of pain relief.
