Exercise Like A Cheerleader! Hamstrings

One of the more irritating injuries for professional cheerleaders is a hamstring injury. Cheerleaders often report hamstring injuries during the professional football season. The high kicks and such require well-stretched hamstring muscles, but so do you when you are gardening, lifting laundry baskets, and getting golf clubs or kids' gear out of the trunk. You need flexible hamstrings, too!

So exercise like a cheerleader, even though you're not one! No, you don't need the pom-poms or short skirts. You just need a little time and a good hamstring stretch exercise routine. The Novelli Wellness Center can help you with both.

In a recent study, chiropractor doctors gave a professional cheerleading team some simple hamstring exercises to do. Their hamstring-related pain and injury decreased. It doesn't take much to help a lot!

The Novelli Wellness Center knows the hamstring muscle and how to stretch it safely. We also know that spinal conditions like spondylolisthesis are often accompanied by tight hamstrings. Gentle hamstring stretching is most important. It's no fun to exercise and hurt. So if you want to exercise to gain flexibility and prevent back pain and hamstring injury, contact The Novelli Wellness Center.

Check out our hamstring exercise options. Don't do any of them until you talk with us, but check out how easy they are to do. They don't take long either, just a few minutes. You can even do them before you get out of bed in the morning. (You won't forget to stretch your hamstrings every day that way!)

Bottom-line: You can reduce hamstring injury-related pain just like the professional cheerleaders by incorporating careful, simple hamstring stretches into your daily or weekly exercise routine, and we can help!
