Materials   and   Methods:    The   cross   sectional   study   was   conducted   in   AFIRM.   The   Keele   Start   Back   pain   screening   tool   was   used   to   collect   data   from   female patients   with   non-specific   back   pain,   who   came   in   physiotherapy   department   of   AFIRM   .The   tool   provided   the   brief   demographic   data   of   subjects   and described the disability and belief about their back pain. The tool is also divided the patients in to sub groups according to the level of risk. Our   study   identified   that   there   is   a   high   prevalence   of   psychosocial   factor   than   physical   factor   in   female   patients   with   non-specific   back   pain   of   AFIRM   and the large number of patients are at high risk than moderate and low risk. Conclusion:    The   research   will   help   to   clinician,   to   select   appropriate   and   accurate   for   cure   and   management   of   back   pain   it   will   also   help   to   prevent   back pain. There   is   a   need   to   conduct   study   in   both   genders   and   in   other   centers   of   region.   The   sample   size   should   be   large   and   study   time   should   be   long.   There   is also need to further identify particular physical and psychosocial factor like anxiety, depression etc KEY WORDS: Back pain, physical factors and psychosocial factors.
