Straight Leg Raise Test

Question: Straight Leg Raise Test

Hi,

I am trying to find some reliable information on how to interpret the SLR test for someone with hamstring pain. What levels/degrees of elevation are significant for neural symptoms, etc...

Can anyone point me in the right direction, please?

Thank you!

Answer:

There is an article that refers to the SLR test here but I'm not sure if it will answer your question, hopefully it will help.
