This study investigates the impact of diverse yogic practices on selected physical variables in women experiencing low backache, a prevalent and often debilitating condition. Low backache not only hinders daily activities but also significantly affects the physical well-being of those affected. This research aims to examine how a combination of different yogic practices can alleviate physical discomfort and enhance overall physical health in women with low backache. To achieve the purpose of the study 40 women participants with low backache were selected for this study using random sampling based on Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scores to assess low back pain intensity. These participants were then evenly divided into two groups: an experimental group and a control group, each consisting of 20 participants. Two primary physical variables were assessed in this study. Upper body muscular strength was evaluated through a Push-ups Test, a common measure of upper body strength. Lower body muscular strength was assessed using a Squats Test. Pre and Post-Test Assessments: Both the experimental and control groups underwent pre-test assessments to establish baseline measurements for the selected physical variables. Following the pre-test, the experimental group engaged in a regimen of diverse yogic practices aimed at improving their physical variables, while the control group did not participate in any yoga practices. After the experimental period, both groups underwent post-test assessments using the same measures to determine the impact of the diverse yogic practices on the selected physical variables. The results of this study revealed significant improvements in physical variables, including enhanced upper and lower body muscular strength in women who engaged in diverse yogic practices. These findings underscore the potential of yoga as a holistic approach to addressing the physical challenges associated with low backache in women, emphasizing its value as a complementary therapeutic tool alongside conventional medical intervention.
