Effect of Nordic eccentric hamstring stretching exercise and sciatic nerve slider technique of neural mobilization in college students: A Comperative study

AUTHOR(S): Chaitali Shah, Hiral Amin and Monica Siyani
ABSTRACT:
Background: Hamstring tightness is caused by a decrease in the ability of muscles deform, resulting in a decrease in a range of motion at knee and hip Joint and limitation in many functional activities. The purpose of this study is to find out the effectiveness of Nordic hamstring exercises and sciatic nerve slider technique of neural mobilization on hamstring tightness in college students. Method: 40 participants will be recruited for the study. All participants will be screened for inclusion and Exclusion criteria. Participants will be divided in two groups. Group-1 will receive Nordic eccentric hamstring exercises and Group-2 will receive sciatic nerve slider technique of neural mobilization. Both groups will be treated for 6 days in a week for 2 weeks. Outcome Mesures: Sit to reach test, Sargent jump test, Active knee extension test for hamstring muscle tightness. Results: Inter group comparison of SRT, SJT and AKE showed significant improvement in both the groups but in intra group comparison SRT, SJT and AKE (All with P=0.00) suggest that students who receives Nordic Hamstring Exercise showed significant improvement in range of motion. Conclusion: The study concluded that both intervention: Nordic eccentric hamstring stretching exercise and sciatic nerve slider technique neural mobilization are effective in improving range of motion, but statistically and clinically Nordic eccentric hamstring stretching exercise is more effective than sciatic nerve slider technique of neural mobilization.
