While it seems like years ago, it was only months ago that Hammy Hamstring made its presence known in the far reaches of my right thigh following a workout.
What the hack Hammy? Will you ever heal?
I thought we had parted ways in November. (Wish I could say parting was such sweet sorrow but… wasn’t.) Four days of Marcothon had you front and center (or technically high and behind) again. Persistent bugger!
It was time for a pro to help so PT… away I went… I had been doing stretching and strength to get Hammy to exit stage left, you know… the friends & family plan – doing all the PT given to friends & family. Isn’t that how we do it? Sure… until it doesn’t work.
Now I’m trying hard to be patient, trying hard not to make it worst, to be a good PT patient so I can be whole again. Today brings a first… first visit to a chiropractor. Let’s make sure or get things even. All the therapy!
Two steps forward and one back… that’s where we’re at.
In human anatomy, a hamstring (/ˈhæmstrɪŋ/) is one of the three posterior thigh muscles in between the hip and the knee (from medial to lateral: semimembranosus, semitendinosus and biceps femoris). The hamstrings are quite susceptible to injury.
