Improving hamstring mobility FEELS GREAT and has been shown to PREVENT INJURY and INCREASE PERFORMANCE - speed, agility, kicking, jump height.

However, improving hamstring mobility requires more than PASSIVE STRETCHING.

If you want to create TRUE BIOLOGICAL AND NEUROLOGICAL CHANGE lets do a deep dive into these SCIENCE BASED mobility techniques :

  • improve neural sensitivity and tone with neurodynamics

  • improve viscoelasticity and tissue organization with mechanotransduction and eccentrics

  • inner and outer end range strength training

  • stability training to limit compensations and overuse

  • learn to move better and create healthy tension in life (hip hinge, walking)

  • joint decompression and health

  • neuroplasticity

I've put IT ALL together in this comprehensive, science based, 1 hour class so that you can confidently begin to optimize your hamstring mobility.

My challenge to you is to complete the class twice a week for one month. If you fall behind, you have an extra month to catch up or continue to groove the exercises. Improving tissue quality and building stability takes time, so keep with it. Mobility is earned!

Neurodynamics

Improving neurodynamics (nerve mobility) improves neural tone, nerve sensitivity, axoplasmic flow, blood flow to neural structures and decreases perceived pain.

Quality of Tissue

Does it feel like you've lost viscoelasticity in your hamstring? If you've had an injury or you've had chronic tension the fibres become disorganized. Not a problem. Biological tissue is plastic (ie it is capable of change). However, you need direction specific force to stimulate this response. We apply eccentrics, sarcomerogenesis and mechanotransduction to breakdown and rebuild a viscoelastic hamstring.

End Range Strength

Inner and outer range strength - this is where we are always weak. This is where compensations happen. This is where there is HUGE POTENTIAL for mobility. Our goal is to bridge the gap between active and passive range. If you have passive range ( range you can pull yourself into) but you can't actively move yourself into that range, then your brain will create stability with protective tension. This is why passive stretching creates temporary feel good moments but they disappear quickly.

Stability

Clinically one of the most powerful tools for decreasing hamstring tension is to address weak core and glutes. if these areas are not stabilizing your lumbopelvic region it will put extra load on the hamstring. A hamstring that is always working harder than it is designed to work will always be tight.

Movement Patterns

You can train well in the gym but if you don't MOVE WELL IN LIFE, you will never win. Here we discuss the hip hinge and walking. Two essential human movements that we often get wrong. If we use muscles the way they were designed then we build in healthy tension, healthy load and healthy forces to our day.

Joint Health

The joints with the greatest influence on the hamstrings are lower lumbar spine segments. Degeneration or compression in this area will create neural facilitation of the segmental nerves which results in hamstring neural tone. We target joint health with an ELDOA. A powerful technique for segmental joint decompression.

OMG!  I just did the first session.  I don't think I've ever worked that hard in my life!  …Everything you were saying I felt was speaking directly to me and my issues!  I work out 5-6 days/week and yet I did not feel strong..  I also have disc degeneration and low back pain, and apparently weak everything!  I don't ever want to do this again, but I must!!  I think it will make a huge difference in daily life and my dancing!

I’ve done your hamstring class 3 times and already feel changes. I learned a lot and am really excited to make some progress.

Brilliant class. Really hard but packed full of great information. Loved your cues about walking too. I think I was undoing all the work I did in the gym because I was walking wrong. Super glad I found you.

This blew my mind and all makes sense. Now I understand why my hamstrings are tight and why stretching never helped. I have some work to do but this is already helping.

My story

I believe MOVEMENT is the the best therapy and our most powerful tool. I am a self proclaimed “movement science geek” and my mission is to bring you high quality movement videos so you can begin your journey of FEELING GOOD and REACHING YOUR PHYSICAL POTENTIAL. I have been a physiotherapist for over 20 years and have a clinical practice in North Vancouver where I use a combination of manual therapy, dry needling and movement. In addition, I am a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy. Locally, I teach group KINSTRETCH + DNS + FT classes and lead workshops for movement enthusiasts. I love teaching, am CONSTANTLY learning and am insanely curious about anatomy. All bodies and levels are welcome. I hope to see you soon!
