What is a hamstring strain?
A hamstring strain, also referred to as a pulled or torn hamstring, is a common musculoskeletal injury that affects the large muscles at the back of the thigh. This type of strain can range from mild to severe, leaving individuals with varying levels of pain and discomfort.
What are the symptoms of a hamstring strain?
A hamstring strain can be a debilitating and painful injury. The most common symptoms of one are a dull ache right behind the thigh as well as tenderness throughout the muscle. When walking or engaging in physical activity, pain will worsen with increased intensity. Other signs include swelling and bruising along the back of the leg, as well as a feeling of tightness in the muscle during extension. A severe strain may also make it difficult or even impossible to fully straighten the leg, or even bear any weight on it. Because these symptoms vary greatly among individuals, medical attention is recommended to accurately diagnose a hamstring strain.
What are the treatments for a hamstring strain?
Treatment for a hamstring strain typically involves rest, adequate nutrition and chiropractic care, physiotherapy and massage therapy to help reduce inflammation, decrease muscle tightness and improve cardiovascular health. Chiropractic adjustments can help improve joint mobility, reduce pain and improve flexibility. Physiotherapy may help address muscle imbalances through exercise analysis, as well as providing stretching exercises for the affected area. Finally, massage therapy can be used to relieve tension in muscles and promote circulation to encourage healing. By incorporating these treatments into your recovery plan, you can make sure that your hamstring strain is addressed properly and quickly.
