I'm not a terribly flexible person, and I've gotten out of the habit of stretching regularly. I decided that I needed to add that back into the routine. I did some yoga/stretching last Friday and by that evening, I had terrible pain down the back of my leg (hamstring all the way down to the bottom of my foot) and in my hip flexor. The pain is still there. It's intense enough to keep me up at night, but seems more tolerable during the day. Advil doesn't take away the pain. So, my question is: do I do some more gentle stretching, then ice it? Or do I apply heat and not stretch? Or some combination of the two?
No announcement yet.
20 minutes of stretching = 4 days of pain
