Clinical Trial Summary

This project will be Randomized control trial conducted to check the effects of foam rolling and stretching exercises on university sport's students so that we can have best treatment option for duration will be for 6 months, purposive sampling data will be done, subject following eligibility criteria from University of Lahore athlete students , were randomly allocated in two groups via lottery method, baseline assessment will be done, Group A participants were given baseline treatment along with foam rolling effects , Group B participants were given baseline treatment along with stretching exercises, pre or post intervention assessment will done via goniometer and Lower extremity functional scale (LESF)and three sessions per week will be given, data will be analyzed by using SPSS version 25.


Clinical Trial Description

The aim of the current study is to determine the effects of foam rolling versus stretching exercises on quadriceps, hamstrings and muscle length in university sport's students. It will be a Randomized control trial and will be conducted at University of Lahore. Purposive sampling technique will be used to collect data as per inclusion criteria the participant age between 18 to 25 years and male and female healthy participants. A history of cardiovascular or respiratory disease, any history of fractures or surgeries in the lower extremity in the past years will be excluded. Patients will be randomly allocated into two groups; Group A will be treated with the effects of foam rolling on quadriceps, hamstrings and calf muscles. 5 min cycle ergometry, 6 min foam rolling 3 times for 30sec. Group B will be treated with the effects of stretching exercise on quadriceps, hamstrings and calf muscles. 5 min cycle ergometry, 6 min stretching exercises 3 times for 30sec for three sessions of treatment per week will be given. In both group's pre and post-test measurements of quadriceps, hamstrings and calf muscle length will be assessed through goniometer and Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS) will be assessed to measure initial functions of lower limb. Evaluation will be done before session start and at the end of week. Total session will be given for at least 2 months. ;
