Effect of neurodynamic sciatic sliding technique on hamstring flexibility in healthy individualsAuthor(s):
V Vijayaraj MAbstract: Background:
Flexibility of muscle is “the ability of a muscle to lengthen allowing one joint or more than one joint in a series to move through a range of motion”. Good muscle flexibility will allow muscle tissue to accommodate to imposed stress more easily and allow efficient and effective movement. More efficiency and effectiveness in movement as a result of enhanced muscle flexibility will assist in preventing or minimizing injuries and may enhance performance.
Method: The study sample comprised 30 patients, of which 15 were divided in Group A and other 15 were divided in Group B. The median time interval applied before and after therapy was 2 weeks. Patients with age group of 20-40 years healthy individuals of both sexes were taken as population. Group A treated with Ne urodynamic sliding technique and Group B treated with Static Strecthing.
Result: The paired t test values have shows that Ne urodynamic sciatic sliding technique was more effective than Static stretching for patients with Hamstring tightness. The unpaired t test values have shown that there was significant difference between two groups in showing improvement in their quality of life in patients with Hamstring tightness.
Conclusion: Ne urodynamic sciatic sliding technique resulted in a positive impact on the lower limb flexibility in the Physical, Functional and Emotional levels. The GONIOMETER score in hamstring tightness subject before and after treatment were statistically significant. Through the results, alternate hypothesis is accepted and also the study could be concluded that there is a significant difference between “effect of ne urodynamic sciatic sliding technique versus static stretching on hamstrings flexibility in healthy individuals” in improving the lower limb flexibility in healthy individual.
