In the postpartum period various changes in the hormone level occurs such as musculoskeletal changes which leads to excessive joint mobility, weakness of core stabilizers, and altered spinal mobility and function. The aim of the study is to evaluate the prevalence of low back pain in cesarean versus normal vaginal delivery and impact of low back pain in their lives. 80 participants were recruited into the study who met the inclusion criteria. Out of the 30 participants who had undergone cesarean section, 17(56.67%) participants were having low back pain and 13(43.33%) participants were not having low back pain. The prevalence of low back pain in postpartum women with cesarean section was high as compared with women who had normal delivery. The quality of life is higher in postpartum women with normal vaginal delivery because of less pain than the women with cesarean section. The disability level is lower in postpartum women with normal vaginal delivery than the women with cesarean section.
