Background: Cricket has gained popularity in our country; INDIA, thus the number of players has also increased. Cricket requires a combination of physical fitness, skill, and strategy. A tight hamstring is one of the causes of Back pain, SIJ, Hamstring muscle strain, PFS, and patellar tendinopathy. The extensibility of the hamstring muscle is important for optimal joint and muscle function. Loss of muscle flexibility as a decrease in the ability of the muscle to deform, resulting in decreased ROM about a joint.
Objectives: To find the effect of Dynamic soft tissue mobilization over conventional therapy in cricket players on improving hamstring flexibility.
Methodology: 30 Players are selected from Ankur cricket academy, Bhopal of 16-26 age group having hamstring muscles tightness. This are equally distributed in two groups A and B of equal size. On group A Dynamic soft tissue mobilization and Passive stretching is applied and on Group B only passive stretching alone.
Result: Independent t test was used to calculate the difference of mean of pre-pre- and post-post Knee ROM between the two groups. The Mean value difference of pre knee ROM of both groups was 31.1±4.24. The Mean value difference of post knee ROM of both groups was 19.33±4.71. Result showed that there was statistically no significant difference in pre-ROM of all the subjects as the p value is >0.05, while there was a significant difference found in post ROM of all the subjects as the p value is <0.05. Later after the comparison of mean values of post ROM of both group, group A showed more improvement than group B.
Conclusions: There was significant increase in active range of motion in both the group’s subjects after the protocol. The range of motion gain in group A is higher than group B. Group A received dynamic soft tissue mobilization along with conventional therapy and group B which received conventional flexibility program.
