In today’s life travelling, standing for long time, sitting in chair & working on computer for long hours has become routine. This life style is the main cause for cervical and lumbar Spondylosis as these reasons directly affect the posture and eventually vertebral column. Main complaint being the Katishoola (localized Lumbar pain), it is necessary to alleviate the pain. Allopathic treatment of NSAIDs has short term effect and there is strong need of effective, safe and long term effect assuring treatment modality. Therefore considering the common occurrence and increasing rate of Katishool, present study was selected for evaluation of effect of Katibasti in symptom Katishoola. Thirty patients of Katishoola of either sex were selected randomly irrespective of the cause and divided into 2 groups. In group A, 15 patients of Katishoola were randomly selected and given Sthanik Snehana & Swedana (local Oil Massage and steam) daily for 15 days. While in group B, 15 patients of Katishoola were randomly selected and given Katibasti along with Sthanik Snehana & swedana daily for 15 days. Improvements were observed on 7th and 15th day. This study showed marked (>75%) relief in Katishoola (lumbar pain) in patients of Group B. Katibasti along with Sthanik Snehana and Swedana was more significant than only Snehanaswedana for Katishoola. There was marked (>75%) improvement in SLR (straight leg rising) test as well as restricted movements in Group B than Group A
