Improve Hip Range of Motion in 30 Seconds!

A main effect for conditions was found with the 30-second massage providing a 7.2% increase in hip flexion ROM that was significantly greater than the control condition (p < 0.05) -Short-Duration Massage at the Hamstrings Musculotendinous Junction Induces Greater Range of Motion

MY COMMENT: My guess is that massage of the hamstring insertion increases blood flow and temperature in that area. Not a bad idea as part of a metabolic warm-up. What have you got to lose?
