I have a client who injured her hamstring from overstretching. it has been a month and she still suffers from discomfort. What do you do for this type of injury, and generally how long should it take to heal. It is virtually impossible to avoid using it or working it without cutting out lower body and cardio. She does tabatas and pilates as well as body wt training
I found the book written by Valerie Ann Worwood “The Complete Book of Essential Oils” very useful for me.
What exactly Valerie Ann had wrote about hamstring:
“Thigh injury – hamstrings.An injury to the hamstrings tendon which connects the thigh muscle at the back and the side.Use the ice method and the ice packs for at least ten minutes four times per day.Also massage three times a day using the following:
Rosemary 10 drops
Eucalyptus 10 drops
Chamomille 5 drops
Lavender 5 drops
Diluted in 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
If pain and inflammation didn’t stop after 2 days You have to visit a doctor.
