Hamstring Strain/Tear

What is Hamstring Strain/Tear?

The hamstring, which is made up of three muscles in the back of the thigh, can be strained, torn, and injured. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may experience anything from slight discomfort to searing pain that makes it impossible to walk and run. Typically, a lack of stretching before a workout is a common and easily preventable cause of hamstring injury.

What are the symptoms of Hamstring Strain/Tear?

You may experience a hamstring strain or tear if you notice some bruising on the back of the leg, feel pain in your lower back and thighs, and notice a popping sound when you engage your hamstrings while playing sports or working out.

How we deal with Hamstring Strain/Tear?

After assessing your injury, we determine which plan will get you back onto the road of recovery. We perform postural and muscles tests to see why your hamstring is overworking for instability in another part of the body. We will then prescribe the right postural correction adjustments and strengthening exercises to get you pain-free.
