Hamstring Strain

Hamstring Strain refers to an injury or tear in the muscles or tendons at the back of the thigh. This type of injury commonly occurs during activities that involve rapid acceleration, deceleration, or sudden changes in direction, such as sprinting or jumping. The symptoms of a hamstring strain include pain, swelling, and sometimes bruising in the affected area.

How we treat Hamstring Strain at STRONG.

Preventative measures, such as warming up before exercise and maintaining flexibility, can help reduce the risk of hamstring strains. At STRONG., we recommend seeking help through physiotherapy, chiropractic, or massage as a first step. Treatments are individualized to your needs and preferences but typical sessions may include exercise or rehabilitation focusing on the lower limb and torso, relative rest and activity modification, tissue release of tight muscles, joint mobilization/manipulation, or acupuncture. Strengthening of the hips, core, and leg can be helpful to prevent recurrence so working with a personal trainer is a good second step.
