Massage Combined with Resistance Significantly Improves Hamstring Flexibility
Date:9/10/2013

Akron, OH (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

Hamstring flexibility, critical to sports performance and injury risk reduction, significantly improved in study participants after a massage treatment that combined a soft tissue technique and eccentric elastic resistance. The results of this study should translate into more efficient treatment sessions and the potential for helping clients and patients achieve their goals faster.

“A great deal of research has been conducted on a wide variety of techniques that improve hamstring flexibility. However, little research has been done on the effects of combining deep stripping massage strokes (DSMS) with eccentric resistance. Our research sought to fill this void by investigating the effects that DSMS alone and combining DSMS with eccentric resistance have on hamstring length and strength,” stated Jeffrey Forman, PhD, NCTMB. “We worked with 64 study participants between the ages of 18 and 62 who were qualified with either one or both hamstrings tight and with no history of knee, thigh or lower back problems for one year before the study.”

Poor flexibility can negatively impact normal biomechanical balance and function, resulting in impaired mobility, pain and reduced sports performance. Limited range of motion in the hamstring muscle group has been associated with postural deviations, low back problems, impaired athletic performance and greater risk of injury (Crosman et al., 1984).

The study was conducted at De Anza College in Cupertino, California in collaboration with the Wichita State University Department of Human Performance Studies. Their findings were published ahead of print in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies.

For the study, a tight hamstring was defined as a 15 degree or more deficit in passive knee extension. Measurements were taken with the participant supine, their hip flexed to 90 degrees and their pelvis strapped to the table. On the m
