Reported symptom quality descriptors during SLR neurodynamic testing. Histograms are presented for frequencies of symptom quality reported during SLR testing. A, B, C represents PF/SLR at the START, onset of symptoms (P1), and maximally tolerated position (P2), respectively. D, E, F represents DF/SLR at the START, onset of symptoms (P1), and maximally tolerated position (P2), respectively. Symptoms reported in <10% of participants are not presented. The frequency of no symptoms at the START position was greater in the PF/SLR compared to the DF/SLR. The most common symptoms at the START position were numbness and tingling. Stretch and tightness/tension were the two most frequent reported symptoms at P1 and P2 during both SLR tests. Pain was also induced in >20% of the subjects at P1 and >30% of the subjects at P2 during both SLR tests.
