Abstract

Neural mobilisation has emerged as a significant treatment protocol, however clinical trials utilizing Passive Straight Leg Raise position in neural mobilisation are lacking. Neural mobilisation is a treatment modality which activates a range of mechanical and physiological responses in nervous tissues. Static stretching consists of a continuous stretch without movement, held in one position for a pre-specified period of time. The purpose of this study was to explore and compare the effectiveness of neural mobilisation of the sciatic nerve and passive static stretching of the hamstring muscles in order to increase range of motion (ROM) of the knee joint during extension.
