How to clear out that pulled hamstring, and keep it from recurring over......and over.......and over......you get the idea.
A blown out hammy is about as much fun as a sandpaper condom and takes a long time to fix, until now. When the semimembranosis gets loaded on the terminal swing phase of movement, and your mechanics in your pelvis are about as smooth as using a monster truck for your drivers test, you ‘tweak’ it.
The rapid change in muscle contractile force between the eccentric phase to the concentric phase produces a brief instability if the pelvis isn’t loaded efficiently.
✅ You ran, you hurt, you fell, you cursed?
✅ There’s a feeling like a lag bolt is being torqued into the back of your leg?
✅ Your warm up is ‘the drive’ to the gym while drinking preworkout?
Here’s the problem, when the external rotation of the hip under load is compromised, the femur rolls internally. Now your hip flexion/knee extension combo is as effective as a polygraph on Jerry Springer. The entire kinetic chain, including the thoracolumbar fascia, is loaded asymmetrically, the SIJs shear opposing each other and your load sequence is corrupt, especially under metabolic stress.
The Psoas, from the lumbar spine to the femur, mutes the hip and generates as much stability as Danny Devito playing middle like backer for the Texans.
