Study Description

Comparing the Reciprocal Inhibition Method and Post-isometric Inhibition Method of Muscle Energy Technique on the Spinal Reflex Excitability in Healthy Subjects

This a cross-over study to compare the effect of two different muscle energy techniques (MET) including post-isometric inhibition and reciprocal inhibition on the spinal reflex excitability. The study contains two experimental groups, while one group will receive post-isometric inhibition MET in the first stage and reciprocal inhibition MET in the second stage, the other group will receive reciprocal inhibition MET in the first stage and post-isometric inhibition MET in the second stage.

Reciprocal Inhibition Muscle Energy Technique

In this technique, the subject will be asked to contract antagonist muscles against a moderate resistant force provided by the therapist to inhibit the contraction of the agonist muscle.

Post-Isometric Inhibition Muscle Energy Technique

In this technique, the subject will be asked to contract agonist muscles against a moderate resistant force provided by the therapist to inhibit the contraction of the agonist muscle.
