Different Therapeutical Modalities Associated to Hamstring Flexibility Training

2017-01-18 05:53:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to compare the acute effect of the use of different thermal modalities associated to the training of passive flexibility of the hamstring muscles in the amplitude of motion of the knee extension.


Context: In the literature there is a disagreement of results and protocols regarding the use of thermal modalities associated with the training of flexibility of the hamstring muscles. Most studies on the subject, used the heat and cryotherapy prior to stretching these. Therefore, the investigators aimed to conduct an experimental study using the therapeutics term concomitant arrangements to passive static stretching these muscles.

Methods: Clinical trial randomized crossover, which will a sample of 42 subjects (healthy young men, aged 20 to 30 years). Were divided into 3 groups (Group 1 passive static stretching hamstrings, Group 2 heat + passive static stretching hamstrings and Group 3 cryotherapy + static stretching hamstrings passive) with 14 subjects each. Where the participants will control themselves, since all carry out the three interventions, only at different times. Each action will be performed every 7 days. Individuals will be subjected to active test of the range of motion of knee extension (goniometer) and hamstring muscle strength (dynamometer).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The distance and direction to which a bone joint can be extended. Range of motion is a function of the condition of the joints, muscles, and connective tissues involved. Joint flexibility can be improved through appropriate MUSCLE STRETCHING EXERCISES.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

Measurements of joint flexibility (RANGE OF MOTION, ARTICULAR), usually by employing an angle-measuring device (arthrometer). Arthrometry is used to measure ligamentous laxity and stability. It is often used to evaluate the outcome of ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT replacement surgery.

Therapeutic modalities frequently used in PHYSICAL THERAPY (SPECIALTY) by physical therapists or physiotherapists to promote, maintain, or restore the physical and physiological well-being of an individual.

Exercises that stretch the muscle fibers with the aim to increase muscle-tendon FLEXIBILITY, improve RANGE OF MOTION or musculoskeletal function, and prevent injuries. There are various types of stretching techniques including active, passive (relaxed), static, dynamic (gentle), ballistic (forced), isometric, and others.
