Tanisha Laul [2] | Mansi Bhartiya | Ali Irani

Abstract: Background: Hamstring tightness is one of the most common causes of hamstrings strains and injuries. Maintaining optimal Hamstring flexibility is key to prevent injuries. Hamstring tightness contributes to biomechanical dysfunctions. With hamstring tightness being highly prevalent, newer and effective techniques must be brought into light that show immediate effects. Objective: to study the immediate effect of hammer tone on hamstring tightness. Method: 26 participants between the ages 18-60 years were selected in the study based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. The hamstring flexibility was tested using passive SLR and toe touch tests. The data was collected and statistically analyzed. Results: The toe touch and passive SLR test values show statistically significant improvements, with p value <0.001. Conclusion: This study concludes that hammer tone is an effective technique in giving immediate results in increasing the hamstrings flexibility.
