BACKGROUND Many patients have tight hip flexors with or without low back pain. Manual fascial-muscular lengthening therapy (FMLT) is one commonly used treatment for this population. OBJECTIVE Investigate the clinical and biomechanical effects of manual FMLT on tight hip flexor patients with and without low back pain. METHODS A nonrandomized trial, before-and-after experiment with multiple baselines conducted on two different patient populations: 1) Mechanical low back pain patients with… CONTINUE READING
