Severity and disability from LBP questionnaire of OSWESTRY collected from all patients before and after treatment. A mean change of less than 10% suggested as partial recovery, while the patients who reached more than 10% decrease suggested as significant recovery.

Results: The results indicated that there is a significant change in the mean score of pain-related disability before and after treatment (respectively 26.37±7.89 and 34.76±8.85, P=0.0001). Results also showed 32.3% of patients reached the recovery level of less than 10% after treatment, while 67.7% achieved 10% or more.
