About

Hamstring tightness is a common problem caused by a sedentary lifestyle and can have negative effects on posture and musculoskeletal function. It can lead to postural misalignment, increasing loading on the lumbar spine, increased pressure on inter-vertebral disc and potentially resulting in low back problems. Bowen technique and Mulligan Bent leg raise is used to treat conditions including hamstring tightness. The goal of this clinical trial is to compare the effects of mulligan bent leg raise with and without Bowen therapy on hamstring tightness in asymptomatic adults.

Full description

A randomized control trial will be conducted at Riphah Rehabilitation Center and Physiogic Physiotherapy clinic on 50 asymptomatic adults who meet the inclusion criteria will be recruited using non probability purposive sampling and randomly allocated using Random Allocation Software 2.0. Informed consent will be obtained from all participants. They will be divided into two groups which will contain 25 participants in each group. Group A will receive three alternate sessions of Mulligan Bent Leg Raise with Bowen therapy and Group B will receive three alternate sessions of Mulligan Bent leg Raise. The Mulligan Bent Leg Raise technique will be performed with 3 repetition, 3-4 times with 20 sec hold and one minute rest between each repetition.
