I have a hamstring that was badly torn 8 years ago that still gets painful and tight when I start running regularly. I have learned through some research that one restructuring technique for scarred muscle is to apply pressure through eg. the corner of a ledge to the injury sight while stretching lightly. It seems to be working significantly! I think it's breaking down some of the scar tissue that is unseen. Does anybody know about this?

I've heard of physios breaking down scar tissue manually, makes sense that you could do it yourself. Have you got a foam roller? Sounds like just the tool for the job IMHO

I have an old hamstring injury torn about 6 years ago that does the same thing to me! I'm going to give this a try and will have to post back if it works or not
. Excited to try it though because its been seriously holding me back on deadlifts and there are foam rollers in the stretching area at my gym!
