AloAboutBasics Day 7. I did a long warmup to this standingforwardfold. I’m feeling stiff today and achey, I’ve had a migraine and taken meds that left me sleeping much of the day. (As an aside, I discovered today that whilst peppermintoil doesn’t get rid of the migraine, it does make it feel more bearable.) My folds tend to be in my upperback, rather than my hips and lower back, so it was good to work on form in this posture. I’m long in the leg and short in the body, which I often blame for tighthamstrings, but this yogachallenge is making me consider micromovements rather than just macromovements and how some long breaths help me sink a little deeper.

Hamstring tension is common and this mobility drill is the fastest, easiest, and craziest result-driven exercise I’ve ever doneand you don’t have to be in exercise clothes! Lie on back, one knee bent to stabilize pelvis, lift opposite leg, flex/extend ankle 15x, lift head to flex/extend 15x, lower head, and move leg forward back to see mobility shift.

💥What is the best way to stretch? 💥 This is a common question that my clients and friends ask me on a regular basis ➡️And the answer is a little different depending on what you are trying to do 🔸Dynamic stretching which is stretching with less hold time (i.e. 3 second holds) while completing a specific movement (i.e. lunges to stretch out the hip flexor) ➡️It will likely be more beneficial for you before a workout because it is a warm up in addition to a stretch of the muscles around joints you are targeting 🔸Static holds (or longer holds i.e. 30 second holds) have been shown to limit the power if completed before the activity ➡️In general I suggest dynamic warm ups before working out and a combination of static or dynamic after working out (your preference) Picture by nicoleryan atxfit austinfitness austintx physicaltherapy tighthamstrings legpain hamstring strain mobility sciatica hamstrings hamstringworkout austintexas austinfit beecavetx westlakehills westlaketx lakewaytx eastaustin northaustin austin This information represents my own opinions and does not represent medical advice.

The most common reason for limited hamstring flexibility is from ADHESION. • Adhesion is also the most under diagnosed problem that contributes to muscle, joint, and nerve pain. • No amount of stretching, rolling, massage, KT tape, or e-stim will fix adhesion. • Limited hamstring flexibility can also contribute to hamstring strains, back pain, and hip pain! • Our clinic specializes in finding and fixing adhesion. • In fact, the average patient we see has had pain for longer than 6 months and has failed treatments with 3 or more providers. • We deliver lasting pain relief, improved function, and improved flexibility with Manual Adhesion Release®️ • This allows people to enjoy exercise, work without pain, and have fun during family time functionalspineandsport integrativediagnosis backpain lowbackpain backpainrelief lowbackpainrelief tighthamstrings hippain adhesion adhesions libertyville mainstreetlibertyville lakecountyil chicagonorthshore chicago

Hamstrings Anyone else is struggling with them? 🤫🤪😫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have been practicing yoga for several years now and I am still struggling with my tight hamstrings. I was a runner 🏃‍♀️ for a long time. So I guess that has a lot to do with this issue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, I had to come up with some sequence for opening up the hamstrings. Now I am doing it every single day. Fingers crossed 🤞 that my hammies will open by Christmas hopefully, this year haha 😂. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Never mind my hams, if you have naturally tight hamstrings (the muscles on the back of your tights) they can create some issues related to body pains. Most of the time they will not cause a problem but they can be more prone to bad tears and may contribute towards injuries such as lower back pain and popliteus injury ( the Popliteus is a small muscle located at the back of the knee joint) as well as limiting your sporting performance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I wanted to share the sequence for opening the tight hamstrings with you. Look out for the new article on my IG stories to check out how you can loosen the tight hamstrings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ tighthamstrings muscletention painreliever hamstrings yoga yogalove yogapractice yogaeverydamnday sunset stretch yogaevent yogainspiration yogawisdom dharma livingyogilife yogaeveryday befree setyourselffree nolimits instagoodmyphoto yogalife yogi iloveyoga yogaeverywhere yogaeveryday

ONESESSIONWITHAZDM (top pic is at the start of the session, bottom pic is about 15 mins later) So this is the same cutie from a few days ago who's working on improving her grand battement. She also wants to improve her point. At AZDM when see dancers who struggle with tight feet we immediately check the glutes and core because we often find weakness there, resulting in overactive and tight ankle and toe flexors. Getting the glutes to fire properly releases tension in the toe flexors and allows them to perform their intended job better, and tada, improved foot point. We will continue with glute and toe flexor training to make sure all her muscles know what role they play in her dancing. 😀 No stretching required. weknowdance weknowdancers dance ballet pointe contemporarydance jazzdance tapdance dancemedicine dancewellness danceinjury scoliosis anklesprain lowbackpain plantarfasciitis dancemedpro tighthamstrings danceconditioning dancestudio danceinjuryprevention azdancers phoenixdance healthydancers danceteacher azdancemed bboy ballroomdance physicaltherapy iworkforpatients http:www.azdancemed.com

Always had Tight Hamstrings? Try These! (Swipe Left for all 5!) 😫For many people touching your toes has always been a near impossibility, even after all of the stretching and foam rolling in the world. —- 🤓When people say their hamstrings are “tight”, most times this is perceived tightness. Things such as neural tension, and increases in tone driven by the nervous system can be responsible for this tight feeling. 👉🏽This is why constant stretching doesn’t usually help very much. —- 💪🏽Today I wanted to show you some active mobility methods that can help you gain more hamstring ROM and keep it. —- ✅Here is what’s going on in each of these: 1️⃣The active straight leg raise is statically stretching one hammie, and actively stretching the other. It’s a good primer 2️⃣The heels elevated RDL decreases the nerve tension during the deadlift motion 3️⃣The front loaded hip hinge is a slight advancement from the heels elevated RDL (in regards to nerve mobility and motor control) 4️⃣The sciatic nerve glide helps overall mobility of the nerve, decreasing any neural tension limiting your forward bend 5️⃣The toes elevated RDL is the most advanced and will really test your nerve and tissue mobility. —- 🔑Tips: go slow, focus on controlled breathing, and ease into any stretch/tension you feel —- Find this helpful?

✔️𝐇𝐀𝐌𝐒𝐓𝐑𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐓𝐈𝐆𝐇𝐓𝐍𝐄𝐒𝐒✔️ 💥 Here is how you can improve your hamstring stretch and reduce strain on your low back. Although I’m not a huge fan of stretching, many people will continue to stretch their hamstrings but may notice some increased discomfort in their low back. I have personally helped numerous people that were struggling with back issues and their hamstring stretching was the single thing holding them back from recovery. If you want to stretch these areas just because you like it, that’s fine, but let’s focus on ways that we can improve the stretch for the hamstring, and reduce the strain on the low back 1️⃣ Find ways to move through the hips to keep the back straight while increasing the stretch on the hamstrings. Some basic ways you can do this is to put the leg you wish to focus on forward and put your pressure on the heel. Bend the rear leg and push the hips back hinging through the hips to keep the back straight. You can then hold some weight to increase the stretch. You can perform this standing or sitting as well 👨‍⚕️- Grant Elliott future Dr 👣 follow rehabfix 𝙂𝙚𝙩 𝙔𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙁𝙞𝙭!

[AOM EPISODE 260] . 🔷️ Hamstring Self-release 🔷️ . Got the hammys 🐷 feeling sore and stiff after a heavy leg day or workout? Don't worry, we got you covered! 🙏 . Today, we’re going to show you a self-release technique with a lacrosse ball to help release those hammys! 🐷 . First, we're going to start off with a self-test - either touching your toes or doing a straight leg raise, and then we're going to retest that after to see how you feel Start in a seated position and place a lacrosse ball under your thigh, finding a tender area Start with your knee in a flexed position (hamstrings are “relatively” shortened) and actively extend your leg to put your hamstrings on a stretch. This will relax your hamstrings as you take them through range through the process of reciprocal inhibition (contracting the quads will relax the antagonist 🐷) Perform this for a couple reps then move to a different spot. Retest that toe touch or straight leg raise and you should feel a little better through the hamstrings afterwards With this self-release, what is most likely happening is we're sending an input into the nervous system which alters the output back to the hamstring muscles which changes our “perception” of tightness Tag somebody that would benefit from this hamstring release. Try it out and let us know what you think! 🤙🏻 artofmobility

Day 1️⃣3️⃣with legsformiles with hands under the feet. padahastasana with cyogalife and yogawithaislinn Hand under the feet is a great counter pose for the wrists after some weight bearing poses like planks and vinyasas. Place the hands till the wrist all the way under the feet( with your toes you can massage your hands) By rotating the inner thighs back, spreading the sit-bones and drawing the belly button towards your back, one can fold deeper By practicing forward fold you will get closer to the ground, however if you think you have extremely tight hamstrings you might like to take a look at your posture. With muscle imbalance in the lower body the muscles are tight in the back of the legs (hamstrings and glutes) and quadriceps are weak (including psoas and lower back muscles). This results in a posterior pelvic tilt, or a ‘tucked pelvis’’. Also too much sitting can cause the muscles not to function properly. 🙄 So being aware of your posture (we also spend a lot of time in class on the right posture) and working on strengthening of quads and glutes can help. Never use force to come deeper in a forward fold. 🌸 poseoftheday yogaposes forwardfold hamstrings tighthamstrings quadsandglutes findbalanceinyourmuscles posture stretchthoselegs handunderfeetpose counterpose yogateacher loveanatomy yogaismagic keepchallengingyourself breathe yogafit livethelifeyoulove

PSEUDO TIGHT HAMSTRINGS When we think we have tight hamstrings, the first thing we do is to bend forward and try to reach the ground. If your fingers touch the ground, you do not have tight hamstrings, if they don't then you blame your hamstrings for your weak squat, deadlift, sprint, etc. The forward bend is so much more than just a test of hip flexion range (assuming that the hamstrings are the only thing that restrict that movement). Sometimes all your body needs to learn is how to use your pelvis and lower back correctly. Repeated bending through the lumbar spine is a common cause for that sore ache in your lower back/pelvis and back of leg. Learn how to do the back extension and set up properly in the deadlift! The aims are: Keeping a neutral or slightly extended spine Moving through the hip by engaging pelvic tilt Loading the hamstrings into a lengthening state (eccentric) And through this your lower back learns how to move in the right sequence with the hips, becoming a resilient structure providing stability while the hamstrings learn how to provide range of motion. You know that if you struggle to do this on your own, you can always book an appointment with myself or my awesome colleagues via theposturelab.sg to get proper guidance, right? 😉 physiotherabeat theposturelab.sg physiotherabeat theposturelab.sg

Hamstrings [Part 2] ♻️ _ Hamstring pain can present itself in many different forms, usually tightness. In this post I will look at 3️⃣ possible scenarios for hamstring pain and the do’s and don’ts for each. _ 1️⃣ APT. The hamstrings may be getting pulled as a result of an Anterior Pelvic Tilt (see pic above). Characteristics of this tilt would be a pot-belly look with a noticeable “C” curve in the low back and don’t forget the butt sticking out! 🍑 Muscle imbalances are usually the root cause of APT, beginning in weakness in certain ‘stretched’ areas especially the glutes, abs and hamstrings. Ideal scenario here would be to strengthen the hamstring, glute and abdominal areas and watch that pelvic tilt return to neutral. 💯 _ 2️⃣ PROTECTION. Struggling to touch your toes without bending your knees? Stretching them won’t help? Maybe your brain is causing the hamstring tightness to protect you. Perhaps your Psoas muscle is asleep. Flex forward with an inhibited Psoas and your body freaks out. Try restoring some timing and function back into your Psoas muscle and the brain may relax and allow you more movement. _ 3️⃣ FRIEND 👍🏼 Perhaps your hammies are helping out your lazy ass! The glute max is suppose to be the most powerful hip extender but if on vacation (think sitting all day) then up steps Mr. Hamstring. He overworks and gets pissed. Hello PAIN 👋🏼〽️🤯 In this case release the hamstring with a gentle stretch and fire up them glutes. Try some one legged bridges, they kick ass! _ That’s why it’s always important to test and not just guess. The hamstrings can be tight and weak and have to be strengthened or tight and strong and have to be released. 2 rules ‼️ 1. Never guess, always test! 2. Never stretch a weak muscle. That shit will come back and bite you in the ass and in this case literally! _ hamstringworkout tighthamstrings weakhamstrings hamstrings bicepfemoris semitendinosus semimembranosus yogaball swissball apt anteriorpelvictilt glutes ass quads pain painrelief physicaltherapy neurokinetictherapy neuromusculartherapy

Why Exercise is a Pain in the Bum, Back and Hips. I’m talking that lower back, the knee pain, the shooting pain down your legs and dull achey, sore hips. You might be a runner or into high impact, high energy workouts or you might be hitting the weights doing exercises like Dead-Lift and Squats. You don’t know whats causing it. It doesn’t make sense and, it’s starting to have an effect on your performance when you do workout. You start missing out the moves that you know aggravate the pain, restricting movements and exercises to work around the pain. Do you know that this chronic pain you are experiencing is because your muscles are tight, overworked, under stretched. No stretching means less mobility - less able to get into those correct positions without compromising good form. The answer to your problems? STRETCHING! and if you say you are if it's not helping are you stretching effectively or just half assing it?
