Hamstring strain

The hamstrings are a group of three muscles on the back of the thigh that bend the knee when they contract. They can be strained or torn if they are excessively loaded or when they are forcibly stretched by the action of the opposing muscle group.

Warming up and down adequately can help reduce the likelihood of injury as well as ensuring the muscles are sufficiently stretched and in addition ensuring good muscle balance and control of the pelvis.

Hamstring injuries can be graded 1 to 3 with grade 1 generally requiring a 3 week rest from sport, grade 2 requiring approximately 4 to 6 weeks and grade 3 could potentially require surgery and a prolonged rehabilitation process.
