The purpose of this study was to find exercise and massage effects patients with lumbar disc herniation. The experimental method was found to be appropriate for this study. Twelve participants with lumbar disc herniation was chosen for this study. The program lasted in one month and was divided into (12) training units at The Golden Hands Center for Physiotherapy in Yemen, which met three days a week for an hour and a half. Massages and exercises were used to improve the flexibility of the spine, muscle strength in the spine, and pain level. We used SPSS Statistics 22.0 program for descriptive statistics for level of improvement, and T-test to determine the significance of the differences between the pre and post-measurements, as the therapeutic exercises improved spine flexibility (the strength of the muscles of the spine and legs? strength). The value of the t-test for a range of motion of the torso forward was (range of motion of the torso forward: 5.69, back torso range of motion: 11.72, right side torso range of motion: 11.49, left side torso range of motion: 3.89, back muscle strength: 3.89 and the level of pain: 6.82were higher than value of the t-test Tabulated (2.20) at the degree of freedom (11) and pless than0.05. Two measurements as pre and post in favor of the dimensional measurement in back muscle strength, back muscles were strengthened and improvement in the flexibility of the spine in patients (pless than0.05). Targeted therapeutic exercises was resulted in the emergence. The homogeneity of the patients in the study variables, where the skewness coefficient values were between (+3,-3). The current study was important because of experimental method and findings had a good positive effect in the treatment of lower back pain and lumbar disc.
