PREVALENCE OF HAMSTRING AND ILIOTIBIAL BAND TIGHTNESS IN NONSPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN PATIENTS
HAMSTRING AND ILIOTIBIAL BAND TIGHTNESS IN NONSPECIFIC LBP
Background- An observational study was conducted on 60 college going students experiencing nonspecific low back pain of mild to moderate range[ on VAS 2-5]. METHOD- Assessment of hamstring and IT band tightness was done by using 90-90 hamstring test and Ober’s test respectively. Participant were checked for tightness and marked whether tightness present or not RESULT- Analysis of outcomes was done by the mean and standard deviation. The result showed that, 58.33% male and 95.85% has female has hamstring muscle tightness. 16.66% Male and 22.91% female has of IT band tightness. 85% population [both male and female] shows of hamstring muscle tightness. While 85 % of male and females both shows hamstring muscle tightness. 21.66% populations [ both M and F] shows of IT band tightness. Conclusion- Study shows the prevalence of hamstring and IT band tightness is present in nonspecific low back pain. In participant hamstring muscle tightness is more profound (85%) than IT band tightness (21.66%).
