Although the distal fibers will not be stretched in this position because of the flexed knee, it is a great strategy to work both the tendinous origins at the ischeal tuberosity and the proximal muscle belly Notice where fibrosed tissue imposes rotational stress that impedes proper motion. Ask your client to pull her leg straight toward her chest while anchoring on tight areas with your knuckles, fists, or forearms/elbows as shown in Figure 16.
Depending on the activity your client is engaged in, the hamstrings can be short and fibrosed in either the proximal or distal fibers(can youvisualize how differently the hamstrings would function in skateboarding, where the leg is pushing with the knee relatively straight, compared to bicycling?) Although you may flex the hip with your non-working hand, it is also useful to involve your client by having her grab her knee and pull it to her chest while using anchor and stretch strokes demonstra
To actually lengthen the rotators, it is helpful to place them on a stretch by bending the knee to 90 degrees and using the leg as a lever as in Figure 20. Of course, it is mandatory you check with your client to assure she feels no strain in the knee, but the joint is actually very stable in this position.
It is exciting to see the evolution of respect for massage and bodywork in the last few years to a valued health alternative, whether for general relaxation and stress relief or for clinical therapy for musculo-skeletal problems. In order to stay fresh and enthusiastic in our work, we all need to continue to grow and refine our skills, and it is wonderful there are so many excellent workshops and specialized disciplines now available.
1. Begin by tying a piece of elastic exercise material, such as surgical tubing or Thera-band, to a doorknob. (You may also hold one end of the band in each hand.) 2. Stand or sit with your shoulder relaxed and your elbow bent 90 degrees. Your upper arm should rest comfortably against your side. You can squeeze a rolled towel between your elbow and your body for comfort and to help keep your arm at your side. 3. Hold one end of the elastic band with the hand of the injured arm.
Take care to make sure your client's low back is able to tolerate this position, and always make sure the opposite leg is flexed toward the chest to keep the pelvis and spine in a neutral position. Use pillows to support the upper body and head. Precise work with the fingers will be effective near the attachment of the rectus femoris at the anterior inferior iliac spine, but clients seem to always love the broad lengthening strokes of the forearm on the belly of the quadriceps.
Remember, the rectus femoris is the only quadriceps muscle to cross the hip joint, and moving the hip further into extension will place it on a better stretch. Unfortunately, lying in the supine position, it is impossible to stretch the hip beyond the neutral position. By having your client slide down to the end of the table, it is possible to focus the stretch on the rectus femoris by extending the leg past neutral hip extension as shown in Figure 19
