Immediate effect of active release technique (ART) and muscle energy technique (MET) on hamstrings muscle tightness in adult population - A comparative study
To compare the immediate effects of Active Release technique and Muscle energy technique in Adult population having hamstrings muscle tightness
Study design: Comparative study
Methods: Ethical clearance was taken from college and consent was taken from 40 male and female subjects having hamstrings tightness .They were divided into 2 equal groups. Pre and post measure of active knee extension test was taken. Group A underwent active release technique and group B underwent muscle energy technique.
Result: There was significant improvement in hamstrings flexibility (p=0.001) in both techniques. Statistical comparison of both techniques showed that both are equally effective.
Conclusion: This study concludes that both active release technique and muscle energy technique are equally effective immediately on hamstrings tightness.
