Pulled Hamstring Muscle

See on Scoop.itChiropractic + Wellness

The hamstring muscles are the large group of muscles found on the posterior side of the thigh, extending from the bottom of the pelvis to the back of the shin bone. This set of tendons are essential towards the body’s functions to extend the hip joints and bend the knee joints. The hamstring is used during multiple sporting activities and everyday activities alike but, when you experience a pulled hamstring muscle, its symptoms can affect the body’s movements.

There are different types of hamstring injuries and depending on the severity, symptoms can be categorized into three different grades, each varying from each other.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Warming-up the hamstring muscles before performing a high impact sport is very important. This group of tendons is majorly used during running or jumping but if the muscles are overexerted, a hamstring tear may occur. Hamstring injury doesn’t only result from a sport, regular everyday activities where the muscles are stretched beyond their limit can also affect the health of the hamstrings.
