I pulled my hamstring last may... I came to college to compete in my sport (track and field). I developed back spasms, and the outside of my hamstring is still extremely sore (sensitive to the touch) and the pain runs all the way up and down my hamstring into my lower back. I have been doing hamstring and back exercises for months, and have been receiving stem, and stretching. What the heck is the problem! I am so frustrated and I dont know where to go from here. Will massaging help release pressure, or what? Also i have been told not to stretch a pull but it has been over a year almost and I am trying to elongate the muscle. Any insight would really be appreciated. I am so lost at this point.
