Muscle is a contractile tissue of the human body. Moving activities require a good muscular condition so that daily activities can take place normally without any obstacles. Reduced flexibility in the lower back and hamstring muscles will impact human movement activities, especially squatting. Neuromuscular taping (NMT) is a useful taping application technique for stimulating muscle eccentricity. Purpose: of this study was to see the effect of the application of Neuromuscular Taping (NMT) in increasing the flexibility of the muscles of the lower back and hamstrings. Methods: 24 students received neuromuscular tape (NMT) on erector spinae and hamstring muscles. After receiving Neuromuscular taping (NMT), the sample was then instructed to do light activity to activate the effects of Neuromuscular taping (NMT) on the muscles. After 15 minutes, changes in muscle flexibility value were measured. The measurement of the value of muscle flexibility is done using the Sit and Reach test. Result: showed that there was an effect of increasing the flexibility value of erector spine and hamstring muscles between before and after Neuromuscular taping (NMT) application (P < 0.05). Conclusion: We found that the application of neuromuscular taping (NMT) can increase the flexibility of the spinal erector muscles and the hamstrings.
