Hamstring Trouble

3 posts in this topic

I have been dealing with a hamstring injury for almost two years now.  Yoga has helped a bit but where my hamstrings attach to my sit bones always hurts no matter how careful I am with my forward bends, or my down dogs I just can't get it to heal up and become flexible.  Does anyone have any suggestions I really want to move forward with my yoga practice but I don't want to make the hamstrings worse.  Thanks so much!

It could be they are protesting the stretch. This sounds really freaking odd, but I learned this at a seminar with a coach who trains rider to ride with no pain (and you use your hamstrings an awful lot!), try poking the hamstrings at your sitting bones with your index finger (or your first two fingers) a few times. It is going to hurt like the devil, but you may feel them relax a little. 

If that doesn't work, you may want to get it checked out.

Did you get medical advice from a doctor for this? I want you to know what the doctors recommend first. And did it work?
