by admin on November 22, 2009

I tried the front splits with right leg in front… I’m 5 inches away till I touch the ground and I pushed myself to like 4 inches and now the front side of my left leg hurts like hell!! How can I make the pain stop? In short amount of time if possible… Pls…I want to stretch again only it hurts too much. Thanks!

NO HOT BATH!!!! You have an accute injury that will require ice for the first 48 hrs. ICE, ICE, ICE!! What you’ve done is over stretch your muscles and created an overuse injury. Don’t do anymore stretching for a couple of days. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist who trained in sports massage and I deal with injuries like your on a daily basis.
