Better Than A Hamstring Stretch: Active Self-Release Technique

Better Than A Hamstring Stretch: Active Self-Release Technique
Hamstring tightness is a very common problem among many of the patients in our Austin-area physical therapy clinic. And for most, simply stretching the hamstrings doesn’t result in much of a lasting improvement. Our active clients often tell us, “I do hamstring stretches like crazy, but they just never loosen up.”  Does that sound familiar?
