    Background and purpose: This study aims at comparing the effectiveness of PNF technique applied by upper extremity and lower extremity on opposite lower limb muscle strength in adults. Method: 200 subjects including both males and females of age 20-35 years were recruited. All selected subjects were randomly divided into 4 groups according to the PNF pattern applied to them through lottery system. PNF patterns were applied isometrically at final position and isotonically throughout the ROM on contralateral upper and lower limb (dominant). A pre-test post-test same subject design was used in which the maximum voluntary isometric contractions (MVIC) of the extension forces of non-dominant lower limb was measured during isometric PNF pattern at final position and after isotonic PNF patterns. Each subject received a two session of PNF. A strain ga.. View More»
