About

This study aims to compare the effect of tension neural mobilization versus sliding neural mobilization of the peroneal nerve on the heat and cold threshold, on pressure pain threshold and on flexibility both in the dominant lower limb (subjected to mobilization) and the non-dominant lower limb (not subjected to mobilization) in healthy young participants.

Full description

Sixty young and healthy participants will be randomly allocated to receive tension neural mobilization (n=30) or sliding neural mobilization (n=30). Data on heat threshold, cold threshold, pressure pain threshold and lower limb flexibility will be collected before the intervention, immediately after the intervention and at least 24h after the intervention.

52 participants in 2 patient groups

Neural mobilization - tension
Experimental group
Description:
It is anticipated that 30 participants will be in this group. They will receive tension type neural mobilization of the peroneal nerve in the dominant limb. This will consist of positioning the lower limb with inversion and plantar flexion of the ankle, extension of the knee and maximum flexion of the hip without pain. A physiotherapists will move the hip from this maximum position of flexion in direction to extension (for example if the participants reaches 80º of flexion the mobilization will be between 40º and 80º of flexion). Each participant will receive four series of 10 mobilizations with 1 minute rest between series.
Treatment:
Other: Neural mobilization - tension.
Neural mobilization - sliding
Active Comparator group
Description:
It is anticipated that 30 participants will be in this group. They will receive sliding neural mobilization of the peroneal nerve in the dominant limb. Each participant will receive four series of 10 mobilizations with 1 minute rest between series of the following combination of movement: from ankle dorsiflexion, knee extension and hip extension to ankle plantarflexion, knee and hip flexion.
Treatment:
Other: Neural mobilization - gliding
