Video Blog - Hamstring Stretch


Hey guys, I'm Dr. Matt Shelly with Geaux Chiro, here in Hammond. We have D'Ann who's going to help me with a hamstring stretch. So if you have some lower back pain, tight hamstrings, maybe strain a hamstring, there's a couple of different ways to do it, but when you don't have a particular spot in your office, this is a very simple stretch that kind of isolates just the hamstring and helps pull that fascial plane. So let's start with - spreads your feet a little bit for D'ann - soften the knees and you're can basically do is just hindered the hips and create a little bit of pivot. So arms one over the other. For me. Good. Hinge. You're going to bend one knee, you're going to extend the other and then you're gonna rotate toward that extended leg, elbow to the knee. And basically what you're going to find is you get the poll that lower back Fascia all the way through the glute, the hamstring, sometimes calf and foot.

So it's a very simple stretch. You want to hold it for about 15 seconds. You could do this about two or three times. And when you reverse this, basically as you come up, so D'ann, go ahead and untwist there, go ahead and stand tall and then relax. And after you do that for a few seconds, you could repeat that stretch two or three more times on both sides. Again, if you go to the opposite way, you're going to lock that opposite leg and rotate toward that knee. All right. I'm Dr. Matt Shelly, please share, please like. Thank you.
