But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Jan 10th, 2014
Nico Nigrelli asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:
I tore my hamstring about 8 weeks ago, rested it for a solid month, then slowly went from walk to a run over the course of 3 weeks. The past week i have noticed there is still a pain in the hamstring, which a friend has told me is most likely to be Scar tissue from the tear and to get a sports massage to help repair the muscle.
Could you please advise on what i should do next?
The Guru Responded:
Are you absolutely sure that you tore a hammy? Did you bruise and did it go “ping”? If so, then yes you did. If no, maybe not.
Sounds like you’ve done the right thing, but the scar tissue diagnosis is pretty nefarious at the best of times.
I’d go for your sciatic nerve being either tethered by your healing hammy or something happening in your back (which may not be painful)
Have a try of this, if you slouch when sitting and put your chin on your chest then slowly straighten your knee, so your hammy pulls – if you now keep everything still and look up to the ceiling and the pain changes (better or worse)……it’s not a hamstring issue.
Nerves hate to be stretched…..Get the diagnosis [physio sport help] sorted and get back to me
