There are many causes of hamstring strains

Common causes of hamstring strain include sudden or excessive stretching, lack of adequate warm-up prior to physical activity and weak or tight muscles. Previous injury can also increase the likelihood of straining a hamstring. In addition, athletes who partake in sports that require frequent sprinting are more likely to experience this type of injury. If you suspect you have sustained a hamstring strain, it is best to seek chiropractic, physiotherapy or massage therapy assistance to address the injury as quickly as possible. Visit a chiropractor, physiotherapist or massage therapist at a CARESPACE location in Kitchener or Waterloo. They will be able to properly diagnose the degree of severity of your strain and provide treatment appropriate for your recovery process.

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.

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.

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.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
