Hamstring problems

Recommended Posts

Kia ora 

 

I tore my hamstring near the start of the year playing rugby yet it still hasn't fully come right. From what the physio says it's the bicep femoris that has been damaged. I can jog comfortably on ithe only flats but once I start to try get some speed up I can feel it pulling. It's getting annoying because I'd like to start sprint training and  working out again. Just need some advice on what else I can do to get my hammy back on track.

Go get a scan bro, have you got bruising behind the knee or below the buttock? if so its torn and depending on the tear it looks like your be off to the physio ACC will cover it.

 

No running bro! accelerating and de-accelerating is a main factor in this type of injury.

 

DEfINATLEY NO sprinting for yo ass cuz!

But this injury happened at the start of the year, @kiwicannon. The question is why it hasn't healed up yet.

 

@M2 - when did you see your physio, and what treatment plan did they suggest? Am I right in thinking that if you're asking us, you're probably not happy with your physio? Do you want suggestions for another physio or specialist?

Oh bugger sorry M2 didn't read the post properly! that doesn't sound good, what did your scan results say?? i had the same injury of the biceps femoris healed up 10-12wks.

 

Physio, light to medium training, static holds etc

I tore my hamstrings (minor tear with some bruising) several years ago and I think it has affected my gait. I easily get sore feet and blisters on the soles of my feet if I walk or jog a lot. 

 

Maybe you have the same issue. With me, I think it is what it is and won't get any better.

 

This year I will try some targeted stretching of my hamstrings. It might help, I think it is a good thing to try and extra flexibility is good regardless. Maybe this could help you? Also, I would suggest seeing a physio and having scans done to see what the extent of your injury is. Some professional advice may be give you the insight on how to best deal with this issue.
