Abstract: Abstract Background and 0bjectives :Sciatica is a common disorder, it is fomi of low back pain, causing pain, numbness, or tingling that down one or both legs, sometimes it causes muscles weakness and rarely, loss of bowel or bladder control. Many strategies like rest, exercises, muscle stretching, myofascial release, heat application, and transcutaneous electrical stimulation have been widely used to alleviate plantar pain. Mechanical lmnbar traction used to reduce pain, numbness and improve range of motion. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of high versus low mechanical lumbar traction in treatment of patients withsciatic pain. Material and methodology: A total of 45 participants with sciatic pain were randomly allocated into three groups. Group A (low intensity mechanical lumber traction (30%) body weight) group), Group B (height intensity mechanical lumber traction (50%) body weight) and Group C (control group), six session was done to all patients. Visual analogue scale, lumbar range of motion and lumber function index that were assessed pre, and 2 weeks post interventions. Results: when comparisons between groups was done,The current study founded statistical insignificant reduction in pain in all three experimental groups (p= .063), and demonstrated statistical in significance improved functional performance (p=.909), also lumber flexion, extension and lumber lateral bending for right and lefit range of motion showed insignificant improvement in all groups. There demonstrated statistical significant improved functional performance in group B (0.000). Group A results better improvement in pain reduction, functional performance and lumbar flexion range of motion as compared to group B and group C. Conclusion: low mechanical lumbar traction with 30% body weight has a positive result in reducing pain, and lumbar flexion range of motion, both techniques low 30% and height 50% mechanical lumbar traction effective in improvement functional performance but has no clear effects in improving extension and lateral bending for right and left of the lumbar range of motion in subjects with sciatic pain
