Comparison of Hamstring Stretching Versus Sciatica Nerve Gliding in Individuals with Sciatica

Varsha A Kulkarni, Prachi Raghunath Pawar

Aim: To assess the effect of hamstring stretching and sciatica nerve gliding in individuals with sciatica. Objective- To find the effect of hamstring stretching and sciatica nerve gliding on Pain (NPRS) in individuals with sciatica. Procedure - To find the effect of hamstring stretching and sciatica nerve gliding on ROM in individuals with sciatica. Experimental study done on 30 elderly people out of which 15 were in the hamstring stretching group and 15 were in the nerve gliding group. Pre and post assessment was done with NPRS for pain and goniometer for ROM. paired and unpaired t test was used both hamstring stretching and nerve gliding group shown improvement in reducing the NPRS and increasing the ROM with p> 0.0001.both the groups showed improvement with p value 0.0001 and t value of NPRS for group A and B is 2.312 and t value of ROM for group A and B is 5.745. Conclusion - After comparing both the groups i.e. A and B, the effect of hamstring stretching and nerve gliding is seen significant The study concluded by supporting treatment benefits neural mobilization for improving pain, hip flexion ROM, decreasing symptom distribution and there is better increment of nerve gliding as compared to hamstring stretching.
