Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study are to compare angles of hip joint between before and after releasing quadratus lumborum muscle.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Muscle Other: releasing muscle Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The 1st physical therapist performed the modified Thomas test position. The participant was asked to lie supine over the edge of the couch. The participant hold one knee to the chest tightly while the other knee was bent over the end of the couch. The 2nd physical therapist measured angles of hip and knee using a standard goniometer at baseline. The quadratus lumborum muscle was released. Then the same measurement was repeated.

Study Start Date : August 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2016
Actual Study Completion Date : January 2016

Arm Intervention/treatment
releasing muscle
The physical therapist placed thumbs on the quadratus lumborum to release muscle.
Other: releasing muscle
At baseline, hip and knee angles were measured. The quadratus lumborum muscle was released. After that, the hip and knee angles were re-measured.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Hip abduction angle [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]
    Range of motion (ROM) of hip abduction


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Hip flexion angle [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]
    Range of motion (ROM) of hip flexion


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Knee flexion angle [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]
    Range of motion (ROM) of knee flexion
