Any tips for dealing with a slight hamstring niggle? Had a niggly spot in middle of right hammy after strength session (squats & deadlifts) in gym last weekend - stretched, foam/stick rolled, used ice & heat on Monday. Hamstrings were still achy on Tuesday (but no obvious niggle), so foam rolled again, and on changing position from hamstring to glute on roller, got a horrible dull ache round top of hammy/groin area. Eased off and felt ok Wed morning, until I squatted to pick up boxes at work, and got the horrible ache again.

Have been using hot & cold therapy, and stretching/rolling - felt the initial niggle a bit at bootcamp yesterday (during *gentle* jump squats, and at end when bending down to pick up cones down the hill. Had sports massage in afternoon - hamstrings are still pretty flexible, though right leg a bit tight in general (he spent a fair while working on inside of calf and up inside of thigh - one particular spot on calf sent a shot right up the hammy).

Have been using hot and cold again this afternoon, and will try a stretch before a bath, but I am seriously paranoid about making it worse!

Got something to say?
