Abstract

Physical therapists all over the world have been conducting newer trials and have used many different methods to increase joint range of motion and maintain it.Techniques commonly used by to increase flexibility include static and ballistic stretching as well as PNF. Recent literatures have indicated that stretching does not provide significant benefits. The effectiveness of massage on resting muscle flexibility has not been extensively researched. However several studies investigated use of massage as treatment of delayed onset of muscles soreness. Massage in often viewed as a time consuming and a non specific treatment option in clinical practice. The improvements in hamstring flexibility in response to dynamic soft tissue mobilization were achieved with every little additional treatment time compared to classic soft tissue mobilization. The positive outcome of this study in consisted with anaedotal reports on the benefits of dynamic soft tissue mobilization in clinical setting. The unpaired ‘t’ test was used to compare the effectiveness of treatment between two groups.
