    I’ve had a hamstring strain for about 3 weeks and I still feel pain. Should I still do stretches even if there is some pain? Also, is it normal to feel some pain after stretching?

    A lot of sports athletes. Moon over my hammy. Sometimes knee pain are actually hamstring issues.

    I had training and did left leg combination kicks, the moment i did a high kick on my left leg, my right back thigh cracked. For sure it's overstretched, since i can still walk but with limping. Using a roller is safe on the injured area to also massage it to increase good flexes?

    well, first time ever, I pulled the hamstring, tearing it out of the buttocks doing heavy yardwork. I felt it rip three days in a row. Today, i stood and screamed bloody murder as it got hot and i saw stars. I iced it and wrapped it with Ace bandage. now I know I must relax for a few days; then rub it out, then do the ball and roller. This is very helpful. TY

    This was super helpful. I pulled my upper hamstring and it got really bad because like you guys said I thought I needed to stretch it. But it’s been like 2 months already and feels better still kind of painful when I work out. How long should I wait until i stretch again?

    I did the same thing! Only, I was sprinting outside. I was done, walking inside the building to get my bag and go home but I decided one more sprint….. I felt my left hamstring start spraining so I stopped real fast(not good). This totals 5 hamstring injuries. 3 on right leg, 2 on left. I’m a soccer player so it’s common. I’m currently in recover. Will try these exercises! Thanks for the vid

    As a Physio, I've put many hours in to trying to solve the hamstring puzzle for my patients and this is what I've come to understand. Almost all are back-related. Here's why: http://yourwellnessnerd.com/hamstring-injury-feat-cyril-rioli/

    Great video. Everything goes along with all the techniques that I have done. I guess I am on the right path, but it is always good to find people with experience that can validate that what I am doing is right. I will recommend your Youtube site to a couple of friends that may benefit from it.

    I was in a walking boot for 4+ weeks my hamstring area up to my butt cheek is killing me. Stretching it makes it worse. Should I treat this like a hamstring strain? Ice, rest and then slow stretching?

    Hello,

    My name is Faith Martin, and I am eighteen years old living in Southern California. 

    I have been dealing with chronic body pain for almost a year now. I fell on a treadmill last early August and dislocated my pelvis/hip alignment and all of that. I thought I broke my hand at the same time however, so I continued to work out weightlifting like I had been doing before I fell on treadmill. Pain began to show up in lower left glue ham tie in/ischial tuberosity area, which I now know after seeing MANY doctors and a good PT that it is most likely hamstring tendonitis. The left leg butt/glute still flares up a little time and again but not horrible. I can usually deal with it with ice. As with any tendonitis, good PT and progressively challenging the muscle is essential. I have been doing that for about 3 months to address the left ischial tuberosity tendonitis and it has improved A LOT. Continuing issues however that I have been unable to resolve, and my current PT cannot seem to resolve, is chronic pain/muscle tightness/spasm in the right leg, which is quite odd considering I never directly injured that leg. Theories include incorrect gait walking due to pelvic/hip misalignment, hip flexor tightness, TFL tightness, IT band, the list goes on and on. I have tried every single type of therapy under the sun. Chiropractor, PT, acupuncture, electroshock therapy, massage therapy, percussion, etc. and my right leg continues to be tight like it is sore and I have worked my right quad to death. I also have chronic flare ups of neck pain/tightness, which is so bad some days that I have to stay in bed. No idea what causes it and it is nearly unbearable. Muscle relaxer pills/advil don’t help long term in the way that I need them too. I still feel pain even when I take them. I realize this is a lot of info and quite overwhelming but I just wanted to catch you up on my story and have you be able to get an idea about whether you can help me or not.

    Thank you for taking the time to read all this. Please respond, anything is appreciated. Do you think this could be a nerve tension problem (in terms of right leg)? Also, Within the past 5 weeks it has seemed to calm down and go away ish but I just went to the gym and tried to do old exercises but with like such low weight. how can I tell if my hamstring is just sore from a workout or if it is a tendonitis flare up? Thank you. I am all out of money to pay other PTs and all the other doctors… I am desperate.

    Blessings,

    Faith Martin

    I felt a sharp pain in the back of my knee as I plopped down, followed by radiating leg pain.
    now I have pain on lateral /outside hamstring. Today I did light (20kg) Romanian deadlifts and a few bodyweight squats still felt pain slight pain in the side of hams and when I tried squat and stand I sense a pulling sensation (like a string on a cello)behind the knee. Could his be hamstring ,patella or acl related?

    I just pulled mine yesterday, do these techniques work with mild to moderate muscle tears? I might have a grade II muscle tear on my hamstring. I felt a snap and an intense cramping sensation when it happened along with a soreness that's persisting.

    Thank you I pulled my hammy 3 times in the last two weeks I clearly was doing everything wrong in recovery. I was stretching then it felt good then I started running again and pulled it. Clearly, I need to do everything in this video.

    all this is useless if your diet is lacking. you also need blood flow and lots of sleep. for blood flow, light swimming worked for me and I upped my protein and vegetable intake. kangaroo steak, brusel sprouts, kale/ leafy greens and for carbs, sweet potato. listen to your body, discomfort is normal, pain means rest. also positive thinking. iv healed a bucket handle miniscus tear without surgery, made a full recovery from a spinal fusion and healed severe quadriceps tendonitis by focusing on blood flow and diet. I'm not a professional, just have spent a lot of time, trial and error. also, I noticed moving to a tropical climate speeds up the healing process

    I’ve had a hamstring injury for 15 weeks now and I watched this and these r the only physiotherapists who have said don’t do stretches. What an absolute load of shite 🤦‍♂️ I stopped doing stretches because these two tits said to and it made it worse, I started doing stretches again and it’s becoming better so keep doing stretches guys. Although they r physios, just saying from my experience 👍🏼

    6 Months since my Hamstring injury. I'm going to follow your steps to see if I can finally figure this out. My injury is up right by the buttocks so I think that makes the recovery more challenging.

    I was miss diagnosed with piriformis syndrome instead of a upper Hamstrain strain, for over 3 months I have been stretching and rolling my piriformis which included several exercises that had me stretching the hamstring with no progress in pain relief.  Now that we believe that it's my hamstring I'm making progress.  Walking and daily activities are no problem, but jogging beyond 2 miles can be painful.  What stage of rehab would you put me in?

    I went to the gym & it was busy. I wasn’t able warm up properly. Normally I’m starting to rep out 600lbs on squat. 405 should be light to me. I did paused & on the 3rd Rep my inner hamstring just popped. Hurts like hell, limping around now really hoping this isn’t gonna take weeks to heal. Wondering how weak I’ll get from taking off. I literally I just screamed sitting down on the toilet Hurt a lot more then I thought it would

    okay guys…..3 minutes in and zero information….. take some cues from the video game industry…. there are a ton of channels that show you how to do certain things within a video game…… The best and most popular channels are the ones that get to the point…..GREAT info at 420

    Does a pulled hamstring get worse and worse? I’m asking this because today I’ve just noticed throughout the day every time I try to stand up or jump a bit while doing some activity, my I think hamstring is hurting. It wasn’t like where it just suddenly hurts and I’m in pain but more I realize it is hurting

    I watched your video for the first time bcz i pulled my hamstring playing volleyball. Although i subscribed but i wanted to mention 2 things for future videos.
    Not everyone is in fit shape to do some of your exercise. Keep that in mind. Also do things that we can do at home. Again not everyone has access to gym to use the roll and ball.
    Thanks

    1/7/20 I hurt my leg 11/18/19, bruise came out on day 5 – the whole back half of my thigh, knee to hip. It lasted 2 weeks, swelling is gone now but it still hurts to sit in a regular chair or anywhere. The back of my leg is still painful to touch. I read that Stage 4 takes 4 weeks to recover. It's been nearly twice that and still can't walk a full half hour but i try every day.

    I like to say I’m very very flexible and one time I dropped into splits without stretching before hand. So I pulled my hamstring the one of my good leg too. I want to get better.
