Impact of DSP severity subgroups on difference in range of motion between SLR tests. The difference in hip flexion range of motion between PF/SLR and DF/SLR at the maximally tolerated symptom position (P2) is presented on the Y-axis (P2diff) in degrees. Subgroups are presented on the X-axis and include the following subgroups based on bilateral averaged VPT (VPT-AVG); 1) no signs of DSP: 0-15 V, 2) signs of mild DSP: >15-25 V, 3) signs of moderate DSP: >25-50 V, and 4) signs of severe DSP: >50 V. Individuals with signs of severe DSP had a significantly lower P2diff compared to two of the other subgroups. Significance is indicated by an * and was set at p ≤ 0.05.
