Comparative Effects of Hot and Cold pack for the treatment of Hamstring tightness.
12 recreational athletes with hamstring muscle tightness were recruited and randomly assigned to the two groups. The first group received hot pack along with the static stretching while the second group received cold pack along with stretching, for consecutive fourteen days. Evaluation was done using shear wave ultrasonography, passive straight leg raise and sit and reach test. Readings were taken at the baseline and at the fourteen days.
