Mridu Krishna B, Dr. Vishnu K Nair

Abstract :

BACKGROUND: Hamstring tightness is a common problem faced by the general population as well as sports players. The MET is a widely accepted method for treating hamstring tightness and Active Knee Extension Test is a procedure used to measure hamstring flexibility. The study is to check the Muscle Energy Technique (MET) on hamstring flexibility. OBJECTIVE: purpose of the study to investigate the of muscle energy technique (MET) on hamstring flexibility on collage female students. MATERIAL& METHOD :20 healthy students female subject with hamstring tightness were selected. Subject were assessed the popliteal angle .treatment given 5 conservative days and the outcome was measured in terms of popliteal angle (Active knee extension test) RESULT: There was a significant difference between the subject treated with MET in terms of improvement in Active knee Extension Range of Motion (popliteal angle) CONCLUSION: Result indicates that Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is significantly improving the hamstring flexibility.
