Background: The existence of this muscle shortening is often found in students, who rarely exercise because of a lack of awareness to move. If it occurs continuously, it will result in a decrease in functional movement and muscle shortening, especially in the hamstring muscles.

Methods: At the Ministry of Health Surakarta 2020 Polytechnic, this study used student subjects aged 15 to 23 years with overweight conditions and functional impairment of the hamstrings. This research (sapphire walk test) was a study with a two-group treatment design and a pre-and post-test design. analyzed the data to find out the difference between pre-and post-test group 1 (tapping and PIR) using a paired t-test and group 2 (tapping and RI) using a pre-and post-Wilcoxon test because the data distribution was not normal on the VAS (Visual Analog Scale) values and the test t is paired because the data distribution is normal on the value of the BSSNRT (back saver sit and reach test).

Results: Administration of neuromuscular taping and post-isometric relaxation and neuromuscular taping and reciprocal inhibition both had a good effect on reducing pain (p = 0.863). and both had a good effect on increasing hamstring flexibility in overweight adolescents (p = 0.786).

Conclusion: The clinical implications that can be applied from this study are that there are different effects of neuromuscular taping and post-isometric relaxation with neuromuscular taping and reciprocal inhibition in reducing pain and increasing hamstring flexibility in overweight adolescents. This is an effective intervention option for overweight adolescents with impaired hamstring function.
