Randomized Clinical Trial in rugby sports club in Lahore. A Sample size of 26 is calculated using epitol.Group A: Sports specific training Treatments will be provided in 30 mins per week for 3 consecutive weeks. Weight programs include closed chain exercises (squats, pushups) and open chain exercises (leg press, chest fly using dumbbell) Stretch shortening cycle (enhances performance through storage of elastic energy during eccentric phase and activation of stretch reflex).

Group B: neuromuscular training Treatments will be provided in 30 mins per week for 3 consecutive weeks Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)


Rugby require constant pace changes that generates high musculoskeletal demand in rugby one of the commonly affected area is low back pain that can affect player performance and can be accelerated by injury, health and lifestyle factors and possibly by joint pain or musculoskeletal disorders. Data will be collected from players in registered rugby clubs of district Lahore. Informed consents will be taken from all participants with the knowledge of aims and procedure. The results of this study will help to improve treatment protocols options for players how it affects the rehab process and how it affects the movement and pain how it affects the rehab process and how the pain restricts movements among rugby players. This study will be based on a randomized clinical trial used to study the different level of effectiveness of sports specific training versus neuromuscular training on dynamic balance mobility, flexibility in field rugby players. Subjects with low back pain meeting the predetermined inclusion & exclusion criteria will be divided into two groups by randomization to avoid any plagiarism. Dynamic Balance, measured with Star Excursion Balance Test; Active Range of Motion (ROM), using a manual goniometer and Lumbar Flexibility, assessed with Fingertip-to-floor test will be used for data collection. Subjects in one group will be treated with Bilateral stretches, contract-relax PNF stretching training and other will be treated with weight training, aerobic exercises. Each subject will receive a total four weeks treatment session, thirty minutes sessions will be performed once a week for three weeks. Three evaluations will be performed once before treatment One week after treatment and four week post treatment follow-ups. Sample size 26 each group contains 13 participants. All statistical analysis will be performed with spss16.0.
