Hamstring Strain

A hamstring strain describes a rupture of fibers of muscles located on the posterior side of the thigh. This can occur during an intense and/or sudden muscle contraction, or during a violent stretch, imposing excessive tension on the muscles and their tendons. A partial or complete tear of one or more affected muscles may also be present.

People who have already had a strain are more at risk of recurrence, especially if no progressive retraining was performed prior to resuming intense sports activities.

Treatment of hamstring injuries consists of Class IV Laser Therapy, management of any biomechanics stresses in the area and exercise rehabilitation to address any weaknesses that can be putting undue stress on the area.
