Aim & Objective: To compare the effect of Mulligan Bent leg raise versus PNF Agonist contraction on hamstring extensibility in healthy adult females. Methodology: Interventional study was done on 30 healthy adult females, aged 20-30 yrs with an inclusion criteria of <75̊ Active Knee Extension measurement. The measurement was taken pre and post intervention bilaterally. The subjects were divided in 2 groups, first group being given Mulligan bent leg raise and second group being given Agonist…

COMPARISON OF IMMEDIATE EFFECT OF MULLIGAN BENT LEG RAISE TECHNIQUE VS. PASSIVE STRETCHING ON HAMSTRING TIGHTNESS IN HEALTHY FEMALE VOLUNTEERS
TLDR
This study concludes that there is significant improvement in Straight Leg Raise in both the techniques but Mulligan Bent Leg Raise Technique is significantly more effective than passive stretching in healthy females with Hamstring muscles tightness or limited Straightleg Raise.
Static Versus Pnf Stretching in Hamstring Flexibility-A Comparative Study
TLDR
The study determined the early findings of hamstring tightness with both groups in the population and showed significant change in hamstring flexibility compared with control group, which suggests the need for practitioners to consider a risk-tobenefit ratio when incorporating static or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching.
Hamstring muscle tightness. Reliability of an active-knee-extension test.
TLDR
Examination of intratester reliability of a test designed to measure tightness in the hamstring muscles found high reliability resulted from strict body stabilization methods, a well-defined end point of motion, and accurate instrument placement.
