Any part of the back may ache; but the commonest site is the lower back that is, lumbar and lumbosacral region. The present preliminary study was an observational, self-comparison study carried out at the department of Moalajat (medicine) in National Institute of Unani Medicine (NIUM), Bangalore. A total of 25 patients of both sex, above the 18 years and below 70 years of age, giving the history of low back pain were selected for the trial. A total of 8 sittings of Dalk were scheduled over three weeks. For the first week, sitting schedule was on alternate day and twice a week for subsequent two weeks. Approximately 20 ml of Raughan (Oil) was used, and duration was kept 15-20 minutes for each sitting.
