Different stretching techniques for improving flexibility in males with hamstring tightness: A review
AUTHOR(S): Harshita Yadav and Anuradha Lehri
Reduced flexibility of muscles leads to tightness in the muscles which further limits range of motion (ROM). The aim of the study is to find out the effects of PNF and NM techniques in improving hamstring and back flexibility in males with hamstring tightness. The literature search of experimental studies published between year 2005 to 2018 on efficacy of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and neural mobilization was conducted through electronic databases (Google scholar, Pubmed, PEDro, Elsevier, Cochrane library) and studies were included according to inclusion criteria. The study concludes that there is need to explore more about the different types of PNF and NM techniques to evaluate its effects on straight leg raise, knee extension angle and sit and reach test on healthy male subjects with hamstring tightness.
