Effect of Nervous System Mobilization on Heat, Cold and Mechanical Pain Thresholds and Lower Limb Flexibility (NCT03029260)

This study aims to compare the effect of tension neural mobilization versus sliding neural mobilization of the peroneal nerve on the heat and cold threshold, on pressure pain threshold and on flexibility both in the dominant lower limb (subjected to mobilization) and the non-dominant lower limb (not subjected to mobilization) in healthy young participants.
  • Other: Neural mobilization - tension.
    Neural mobilization in tension consists of using combinations of joint movement known to maximize the tension and lengthening of peripheral nervous structures. The intervention will be delivered in one session only.
    • Other: Neural mobilization - gliding
      Gliding neural mobilization consists of using combinations of joint movement known to maximize the movement of the peripheral nerves in relation to adjacent structures. The intervention will be delivered in one session only.

      Inclusion Criteria:
      • naïve to nervous system mobilization;
      Exclusion Criteria:
      • Any surgery or trauma in the previous 6 months; neurological, cardiorespiratory or rheumatic pathology; cancer.
      Sixty young and healthy participants will be randomly allocated to receive tension neural mobilization (n=30) or sliding neural mobilization (n=30). Data on heat threshold, cold threshold, pressure pain threshold and lower limb flexibility will be collected before the intervention, immediately after the intervention and at least 24h after the intervention.
