Hamstring Treatment?

Once we understand the backdrop or your story we start by:

  • Releasing tight, fixated, stuck tissue.
  • Activating weak and inactive muscles, eg Glutes
  • Sequencing the kinetic chains, eg, exercizes to target the core and glutes to ensure that the imbalances are addressed.
