Proximal hamstring self treatment
This is Coach Cam Elliott demonstrating one of his favoured mobility techniques for upper hamstring tightness.
To self treat the upper hamstring, particularly reducing resistance created by the hamstring or hip.
Sit on your favourite treatment ball or device, eg. a spikey ball or lacrosse ball. Loop a superband around the foot, securing it by hand on the mid-thigh, across the front of the knee. Using the band to assist, straighten and bend the knee.
Use a reassessment movement to evaluate the effectiveness, such as a passive straight leg raise, active straight leg raise, sit and reach or toe touch in standing.
