Numeric Rating Scale for pain and OswetryDisability Questionnaire were used to measure pain and functional disability before and after the intervention. This study revealed the experimental group indicated significantly pain relief (p=0.000) and disability reduced (p=0.000) after three weeks intervention. This study concludesthat ginger compress is effective in pain relief and reduces functional disability in patients with non-specific low back pain.|
