Abstract

Context

Day by day, sports participation in youth is increasing. Due to increased participation, exercise related injuries are increased. Repeated Exercises causes microtrauma leading to fibrous tissue adhesions which further leads to decreased flexibility ultimately leading to Musculoskeletal dysfunctions.

Aim

To study the effectiveness of Self Myofascial Release, Static Stretching and Neural Tissue Mobilization on Hamstring flexibility in athletes

Methodology

80 subjects of the age group 18–25 were randomly allocated to receive Self Myofascial Release and Static Stretching (Group A) and Neural Tissue Mobilization (Group B). Group A was given 3 sets of Foam Rolling for 30 to 60 seconds combined with 3 sets of static stretching for 20 to 30 seconds hold. Each subject was assessed for Active Knee Extension and Straight Leg Raise at baseline and immediately post-treatment.

Results

Both the interventions significantly improved AKE and SLR immediately post treatment within the groups whereas the inter group analysis showed significant difference in AKE between Groups but no significant difference was found in SLR.

Conclusion

Self Myofascial Release combined with Static Stretching and Neural Tissue Mobilization both were effective in improving Hamstring Flexibility, but Neural Tissue Mobilization was found to be superior.
