Abstract

Flexibility is the ability to move a joint or a series of joints through an unrestricted pain free range of motion. It is dependent upon the extensibility of muscle which allows muscle that crosses a joint to relax, lengthen and yield to a stretch force. (1) Posterior femoral muscle includes biceps femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus termed as hamstrings which crosses hip and knee joint integrating coxal extension with genu flexion respectively.
