Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to research the effect of performing myofascial release techniques in the neck flexor on the flexibility of the hamstring. Methods: Fifty persons with short hamstrings participated in this research. According to the results of the SLR Angle measurement test, the subjects were allocated to myofascial release technique to 50 individuals. The Myofascial release techniques were applied to the individuals. For the analysis, we used the straight leg raise (SLR) test for the flexibility of hamstring. Results: In the present study, marked improvement in the outcome measure of the study was SLR angle observed at pre - treatment (0 sitting) and just after the technique post treatment and compared statistically. There will be a significant change in the SLR after the intervention. Conclusion: Application of the myofascial release technique to persons with short hamstrings resulted in immediate increases in flexibility of the hamstring. However, we could see that the myofascial release technique was effective.
