The Massage Technique That Help An NFL's pulled hamstring
By Melissa McCutcheon, LMT
He explained to me he had pulled his hamstring in a game about 2 weeks ago.
He had been doing PT and seeing the NFL's massage therapist, but things weren't going well. He thought they might sideline him for the rest of the season.
I called this technique the hammy chisel.
I would find scar tissue that needed to be broken up, then using my elbow to dig deep into the tissue, I would sliding my elbow back and forth ever so slightly to break the scar tissue up.
He was already still seeing the NFL's Physical Therapist, so as not to over- treat him, he did not do any extra at- home stretches, etc.
Great! Each massage his hamstring got better and better. After 6 weeks he was back playing.
