Background: To study and compare the effectiveness of active release technique and mulligan bent leg raise in subjects with hamstring tightness. Methods: 40 normal healthy subjects (20 in each group) were recruited in the study under simple randomization method. Group A received single session of Active Release Technique and Group B received single session of Mulligan Bent Leg Raise technique for hamstring tightness. Popliteal angle and Sit and reach flexibility tests were measured pre…

Short Term Effects of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation Technique Versus Mulligan’s Bent Leg Raise Technique in Asymptomatic Subjects with Hamstring Tightness- A Randomised Clinical Trial
TLDR
Both IASTM (M2T blade) and Mulligan’s BLR technique are effective in reducing the tightness of hamstring muscle which was maintained for 24 hours post-treatment.
Effect of Mulligan Bent Leg Raise Technique on Hamestring Shortening Following Lower Limb Burn
TLDR
It is concluded that the mulligan bent leg raise technique is effective in elongating the hamstring muscle as reflected by the improved gait parameters as well as the ROM of knee extension.
COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT THERAPUTIC TECHINQUES ON HAMSTRING FLEXBILITY IN NORMAL ADULTS: RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
TLDR
It can be reasoned that both active release and muscle energy techniques have similar impact in enhancing hamstring flexibility than Mulligan technique in normal male adults.
Comparative Study of Mulligan Bent Leg Raise vs. Hold Relax Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation on Hamstring Tightness in High School Student
TLDR
Effect of Mulligan Bent Leg Raise Technique shown more reduction in hamstring tightness, and improves Active knee extension range of motion compare to PNF hold relax technique.
The immediate effects of tissue flossing during active isolated stretching on hamstring flexibility in young healthy individuals
TLDR
The application of tissue flossing as a compression strategy during hamstring active isolated stretching has a significant effect on the traditional sit-and-reach test and tends to be better or not worse than stretching without flossed on overall hamstring flexibility.
Comparison between dynamic oscillatory stretch technique and static stretching in reduced hamstring flexibility in healthy population: A single blind randomized control trial.
TLDR
Dynamic oscillatory stretch technique was found to be more effective in improving hamstring flexibility and perceived pain compared to static stretching technique.
Effects of Active Release Technique on Hamstrings Flexibility in Patients having Chronic Low Back Pain
TLDR
Ten sessions of Active Release Technique (ART) improves hamstrings flexibility and reduce LBP and disability over time.
EFFECTIVENESS OF POSITIONAL RELEASE TECHNIQUE VERSUS ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE ON HAMSTRINGS TIGHTNESS
TLDR
This study aims at finding out an effective variant Positional Release Technique and Active Release Technique which has an immediate effect on hamstrings flexibility.

A Comparative Study : Static Stretching Versus Eccentric Training on Popliteal Angle in Normal Healthy Indian Collegiate Males
Objective: To investigate and compared the effect of Static stretching (SST) and Eccentric Training (ECC) on popliteal angle i.e. hamstrings flexibility in normal healthy Indian collegiate males.
A Comparative Study: Static Stretching Versus Eccentric Training on Popliteal Angle in Normal Healthy Indian Collegiate Males
TLDR
It can be concluded that the Static stretching and eccentric training program improves the Popliteal angle i.e. hamstring flexibility and it will enhance the athletic performance.
Improvement of Hamstring Flexibility: A Comparison between Two PNF Stretching Techniques
Objective: To determine the effectiveness of two PNF stretching techniques for improving hamstring flexibility and to compare the effectiveness of two PNF stretching techniques (Hold Relax and
The effect of warm-up, static stretching and dynamic stretching on hamstring flexibility in previously injured subjects
TLDR
Static stretching also increased hamstring flexibility, whereas dynamic did not, in agreement with previous findings on uninjured controls, and the hypothesis that increased flexibility improves outcomes is validated.
The conservative treatment of Trigger thumb using Graston Techniques and Active Release Techniques.
TLDR
A patient with trigger thumb appeared to be relieved of his pain and disability after a treatment plan of GT and ART.
Duration of maintained hamstring flexibility after cessation of an acute static stretching protocol.
TLDR
The results suggest that 4 consecutive 30-second static stretches enhanced hamstring flexibility (as determined by increased knee-extension range of motion), but this effect lasted only 3 minutes after cessation of the stretching protocol.
Concurrent Validity of Four Clinical Tests Used to Measure Hamstring Flexibility
TLDR
Based on the results of this investigation and a review of the literature, the authors recommend that researchers, clinicians, and strength and conditioning specialists adopt the KEA test as the gold standard measure for hamstring muscle length.
