Effect of muscle energy technique v/s static stretching on tight hamstring muscles length and pelvic inclination amongst asymptomatic adults


Kuldeep Deshpande, Supriya Dhumale

Aim of this study was to compare the effect of Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and static stretching on length of hamstring muscle and pelvic inclination. Method: 60 individuals with tight hamstrings including both males and females participated in study with age 19 to 25 years. 30 individuals received static stretching and 30 individuals received post isometric relaxation technique of MET for 20 sessions. Angle of SLR, Passive Knee Extension (PKE) and Pelvic Inclination (PI) recorded and compared in both groups pre and post treatment. Statistical significance of SLR, PKE and PI calculated in both study groups and also between the groups. Result: Study showed that there was significant difference between pre and post values of outcome measures in both thegroups, whereas no significant difference in both experimental and control group results as evident from mean change in control group and experimental group in SLR 4.88 to 6.15 (p=0.20), PKE 4.01 to 4.6 (p=0.55), PI 1.21 to 1.66 (p=0.25.) Conclusion: Both static stretching and muscle energy technique are equally effective in treating tight hamstrings muscles in asymptomatic adults.
