Hamstring Injuries – Risk Factors, Assessment and Rehab

By now, I’ve exhausted you with several good resources on hamstrings, especially on the Rehabilitation side of things.  I hope you enjoyed them Smile

I included nine good articles from myself, Derek Hansen, Gerard Mach and Thachvu Ho.

But you know there is more to hamstring injuries… stuff like Risk Factors and Assessment.  Derek did a very good job in the  4 part series on rehab week-by-week in a diary format with real-time videos of our athlete.

If you’ve been struggling with a hamstring injury that just won’t heal, then you should check this next video series out.  It puts the overall picture in perspective.  This pertains to all sports that require speed… sprinting, football, soccer, rugby…

Maybe you just felt a tweak in your hamstring one day. You tried to push through the pain for a little while but it didn’t go away – you finished whatever you were doing, went home, and expected the injury to go away. The next time you try to run or jump or do anything with your hamstring, it’s still tight – maybe you’re even limping. Weeks pass, you rest a little bit, then try to return to training – but you just can’t kick the injury. Every time you use your hamstring, it hurts, or limits you in some way.

Sound familiar?

  • Truste me, Jim. We can’t get tired of these! After all staying healthy should be our most important longtime goal. Here in southamerica training tends to be very conservative so these type of rehab/preventive articles are pretty much underrated and hard to find! Thanks!

  • Oh, this is great!! Im just ending my season with a few minor injurys (tibial posterior overload A.K.A shin splints, rotator cuff pain) so im planing to do an off-season focusing in auxiliary work and rehabilitating my body for the next season. So that brings a good topic a think, off-season training, what do you think athletes should do during that period?

  • Had enough!? No way Hose. This is absolutely brilliant resources that all Athletes should try to grab…, and grasp before, during and after the seasons.

    As you knew well Jim that i have been injured for quite a long spell now, i would gladly encourage any sports men or women to cater for their body and health by reading these articles.

    It’s life changing, educational and lots to learn about our well-loved body.
