Hamstring Round Up
So I tweaked my hamstring for the first time in my life on Tuesday. I was running deep for a huck, and then I suddenly had a catch in my left hammie. I think it had to do with the uneven fields we were playing on, but I don’t think I was as warm as I could have been. This is bad timing for tryouts this weekend, so I am trying to fix it as fast as possible. Here are some of the resources I have been reading.
- Injury Timeout: Muscle Strains – This is a great resource for alot of injuries associated with Ultimate, and I found out about it a couple months ago, though now it is the first place I check when something goes wrong.
- Recovery 101 by Mike Robertson – Mike Robertson comes through in the clutch again. I like some of the visualization/meditation stuff in this article, of course there is also the Self Myofascial Release aspect.
- The Evolution of Rehab and Why RICE Sucks by Eric Homan – I am a big fan of adding movement to injuries and creating scenarios where blood flow is frequent to the affected area. That’s what she said?
- Nutrition Applied to Injury Rehab by Luke Bucci – This seems to be a heavy read but a great one, none the less. I take fish oil on a daily basis and this book confirms why I do – to reduce inflammation. One of the many benefits of this supplement. Also, it’s really cheap at Costco!
Does anyone have tecniques or methods they have used that aren’t present in any of these articles? Let me know in the comments.
