Author(s): Amar Prakash and Sangeeta Maurya

Abstract: A cross sectional study was conducted on 50 subjects of age group 20 – 50 years. Low back pain is a major cause of disability affecting performance at work. Abnormal foot posture and function have been implicated with low back pain. Hence a need was identified to find out correlation between foot pronation and disability associated with low back pain. The mean of ODI score (% disability) for right for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd degree was 24.72±10.31, 32.57 ±8.82 & 27.33±11.71 respectively & left foot was 24.70 ±10.57, 31.64±8.52 & 27, 25.00 ±15.55 with p =0.058, F= 3.0311 & p= 0.081, F= 2.654 respectively.
Conclusion: A negative relationship was found between the ODI score (% disability) and degrees of foot pronation
