Aim& Objective To compare the effect of Mulligan Bent leg raise versus PNF Agonist contraction on hamstring extensibility in healthy adult females. Methodology Interventional study was done on 30 healthy adult females, aged 20-30 yrs with an inclusion criteria of less than75 Active Knee Extension measurement. The measurement was taken pre and post intervention bilaterally. The subjects were divided in 2 groups, first group being given Mulligan bent leg raise and second group being given Agonist Contraction technique (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) The treatment was given for 6 days. Pre and post AKE readings intra-group and inter-group were analyzed statistically. Results& Conclusion The study concludes that Mulligan Bent Leg Raise and PNF Agonist contraction interventions both significantly improve hamstrings flexibility confirmed by appropriate statistical tests, with a P value of less than 0.0001. Also inter-group comparisons showed that Mulligan BLR technique had better efficacy than PNF Agonist contraction in improving hamstrings flexibility. Clinical Implication Mulligan BLR and PNF Agonist contraction can be good adjuncts for improving hamstrings flexibility.
