The purpose of the study was to compare the effect of Kinesiotaping and co-cordinating exercises in non-specific low back pain (NSLBP). Other objective of the study was awareness of Kinesiotaping in the patients of low back pain. 60 patients having non-specific low back pain (male and female) fulfilling the inclusion and exclusion criteria were selected from Swami Vivekanand University (Subharti University) Meerut. The subjects were randomly allocated in two groups. The subjects of group A were treated with application of Kinesiotaping on centre point of pain and the subjects of group B were treated with co-ordinating exercises. Pain and functional ability was depicated by using VAS Scale. To assess the effects of concern treatment mean, standard deviation and ‘t’ ratio were computed and data analysis was done by using SPSS Version 15.0. Significant changes were found between both groups for VAS (Visual Analog Scale). Study shows that kinesiotaping has a significant effect on non-specific low back pain control.
