Abstract: Background: Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combine element of several dance including Modern, Jazz, Lyrical and Classical Ballet. Dancers are most commonly affected with iliopsoas tightness due to repetitive flexion of hip. Objective: To find out the effectiveness of posterior femoral glide technique for iliopsoas pain and tightness in contemporary dancers. Methods: Pilot study was conducted on 15 contemporary dancers were selected under the selection criteria aged between 18-25 years with pain and iliopsoas tightness and 15 dancers were given with posterior femoral glide technique. The outcome tools used are numerical pain rating scale (NPRS), Thomas test (hip flexor angle) both are measured before and after the treatment. Results: The obtained data were analyzed by using?t? test and paired?t? test. Comparison of post difference of numerical pain rating scale and range of motion score between experimental and control group. The ?p? value is 0.001. Hence, it is concluded that, NPRS and ROM has high significance. Conclusion: This study concluded that posterior femoral glide technique has got beneficial effect in improving the hip flexion range in contemporary dancers with iliopsoas tightness.
