Aim and Objectives: To determine the effect of Neurodynamic Sliding Technique On Hemiplegic Stroke Subjects With Hamstring Tightness.

Methodology: Quasi Experimental study design was used in this study. Total 20 hemiplegic subjects with hamstring tightness were selected. Then pre intervention measurements was taken using goniometer by passive SLR test on affected side. Then all subjects underwent Neurodynamic sliding technique (NDST) for 20 repetitions and 3 sets. NDST was performed for 4 week. At the end of fourth week post test measurement was taken. Then pre and post intervention measurements were taken using goniometer as per pre intervention measurement. The values were tabulated and statistically analyzed.

Results: At the end of study data were analysed the mean score of Passive SLR for hamstring preintervention 56.30 and post-intervention 62.55. Finally there is significant change in mean value (p < 0.00).Conclusion: NDST shows minimal observable significance in hemiplegic subjects. Hence this NDST should be practiced for long term effect.
