studies did not include participants with hamstring pathologies; however, to determine the effectiveness of this treatment technique, perhaps more studies examining individuals with hamstring hypomobility should be conducted. An additional factor to consider is the structural properties that cause a

Eighteen subjects participated in a randomized controlled clinical trial to compare the effectiveness of two physical therapy treatments for tennis elbow. The subjects were divided into two groups: In the neural tension group (NTG), the head of the radius was mobilized and specific physical therapy mobilizations were used to address hypomobility of the radial nerve. The standard treatment group (STG) received ultrasound, transverse friction massage, and stretching and strengthening exercises for the extensors of the wrist. All subjects were treated twice weekly for 6 to 8 weeks. Follow-up data were obtained at 3 months post-treatment. Subjects who received radial head mobilization improved over time (p < .05), while those who did not receive radial head mobilization did not improve. Results of the NTG treatment were linked to the radial head treatment, and isolated effects of the NTG treatment could not be determined. There were no long-term positive results in the STG.

tonus. 2 , 3 As the capsuloligamentous structures are stretched mechanically during mobilization, these receptors might be activated during the process. 2 Page et al 4 reported that capsular hypomobility following joint dysfunction results in secondary inhibition by anterior horn motor cells and leads

inversion ankle sprains is an anterior and inferior shift of the fibula relative to the talus. Positional faults of the fibula are thought to limit accessory motions in the ankle, which may result in hypomobility 12 and negatively affect sensorimotor function. 13 , 14 To address fibular positioning faults
