Postpartum Low back pain (PP-LBP) is more common and can lead to limitations to women's daily activity. Pregnancy related low back pain has been reported to occur in 55% to 78% women worldwide.This study is planned to determine the effects of abdominal hypopressive technique on postpartum low back pain, mobility and disability.


literature suggests the use of hypopressive abdominal techniques to be effective in increasing the thickness of the abdominal muscles and hence add to the stability of the spine and alleviation of low back pain in the postpartum period. This will be a randomized controlled trial, with two groups.

Participants in the experimental group will learn how to perform the "hypopressive maneuver", which consisted of exhaling to their expiratory reserve volume, then holding their breath (apnea), and expanding their rib cage, to draw their abdominal wall inward and cranially without inhalation. control group will perform general exercises. Both groups will be assessed at pre and post test (after 6weeks)
