Immediate Effect of Active Release Technique Versus Muscle Energy Technique in Subjective with Hamstring Tightness: A Rendomized Clinical Trial
Keywords:Hamstring tightness, Active release technique, Muscle energy technique, flexibility
Research Topic: To study and compare the effectiveness of active release technique and muscle energy
technique in subjects with hamstring tightness.
Method: 60 normal healthy subjects (30 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 Muscle Energy Technique for hamstring tightness. Active knee extension test (90-90 test) were measured
pre-intervention and post-intervention. Data was analyzed using t-test.
Results: Statically there is significant (p<0.05) effect of active release technique than the muscle energy
technique on subjects with hamstring tightness.
Conclusion: A single session of active release technique is better as compared to muscle energy technique
to improve hamstring flexibility and range of motion. There for active release technique can be used with
conventional techniques in clinical settings.
