Topic - Myofascial self massage, how much is too much?

Bjartur i Sumarhus on 24 Apr 2013
I have been suffering with a sore / tight hamstring for a while now whilst running. Usual thing, can spread from the glute, right down to the calf in discomfort whilst resting, but when running is pretty localized.

Have seen physio and she showed me a way to massage the trigger point with a golf ball under my leg whilst sitting on a chair. As I sit for my job, this is something I find easy to do (although it is fooking painful, there is no hiding from a golf ball ;-) and have been doing it a lot.

I am due back at the physio next week, but didn't find out if it's possible to over do the massaging and do more harm than good.

Anyone have any advice?
