Comparison Of Reciprocal Inhibition And Post Isometric Relaxation On Iliopsoas Muscle Tightness In Healthy Young Individuals
Iliopsoas tightness, Post Isometric Relaxation, Reciprocal Inhibition, Modified Thomas Test, Universal Goniometer.
This study was emphasized to compare the reciprocal inhibition and post isometric relaxation on iliopsoas muscle tightness in healthy young individuals, which provide a baseline information that Iliopsoas muscle is a hip flexor which rarely gets stretched in daily living activities which results to the tightness. The purpose of the study was to compare the effect of both Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR) and Reciprocal Inhibition (RI) are the two techniques, Muscle Energy Technique (MET) directed at iliopsoas muscle on hip extension. Methodology: Permission was taken from ethical committee. An experimental study was carried out on which two group studies involved 15 subjects in each group. Group A received Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR) and Group B received Reciprocal Inhibition (RI). Iliopsoas tightness and Hip ROM was assessed by using Modified Thomas Test and Universal Goniometer respectively pre and post intervention i.e. after 2 weeks of intervention. Results: There was significant improvement in iliopsoas muscle tightness in both PIR and RI groups. Statistical comparison of the results of the techniques showed that both the treatments were equally effective in reducing pain and increasing hip joint flexibility (p value= <0.0001).
