Here is a unique case study of how we helped a client to successfully manage a very difficult hip problem. This client who still trains with us, has now trained with us for nearly 3 years. But it took a good 2 years of constantly changing the plan, going backwards and forwards and constantly using various tools and methods to find a way forward with certain movements that were continually aggravating her. It was a very bumpy road, and before we met her she had already tried many things from other health practitioners with little to varied success. We wanted to share this story to show how difficult working with chronic pain can be, and why you need to very patient with the approach and also be wise enough to make changes were needed. Sometimes going backwards in the plan is the best way forward. Keeping notes is vital and I cannot stress this enough for this helps you to see patterns and establish what is the source of the problem. Otherwise you just end up reacting and treating symptoms which never leads to a good long term result. This article was written in combination with trainer Nathan Fejes who spent a majority of the time with this client.

Of all the muscles to get a bad rap and always to blame for creating trouble, the hamstring muscles would be right up there alongside the upper traps as the public enemy number one. Watch anyone who plays sports do their stretching routine and you are guaranteed to see the hamstrings get a real workout, or participate in a Yoga class to see how many hamstring stretches you will have to complete and it seems like everyone must be short and tight in this muscle group. Now while this may seem like a good idea, what you will find in this article is that many people who are cranking excessive mobility into this area are in fact creating a huge potential problem at joints like the knee, and even the lower back. It is ironic for many people are doing the stretch in the belief it is going to prevent these injuries. We will also discuss the strategies that are used to strengthen the hamstrings, in particular with sports where hamstring tears are common, and show you that it is not the hamstring that is the problem. The hamstring muscles really are very misunderstood, and when you appreciate how they actually function you will become much smarter with how you approach your training.
