Most Common Sports Injury- Hamstring Pull

Hamstring injury -
A hamstring injury is a strain or tear to the tendons or large muscles at the back of the thigh.

The hamstrings are tendons (strong bands of tissue) at the back of the thighs the hamstrings are tendons (strong bands of tissue) at the back of the thighs that attach the large thigh muscle to the bone. Hamstring muscles aren't used much while standing or walking, but they're very active during activities that involve bending the knee, such as running, jumping and climbing.

The hamstringswhat causes hamstring injuries?

How do I know if i've injured my hamstring?

When to see your physiotherapist recovery?


It's a common injury in athletes and the three grades injury are:

  • Grade 1 – a mild muscle pull 
  • Strain (few days to heal, whereas it could take) weeks 
  • Grade 2 – a partial muscle tear grade 2 recovery time depends from a hamstring strain or tear will depend on how severe the injury is)
  • Grade3 – a complete muscle tear (may take a for months)

What causes hamstring injuries?

  • A hamstring injury can occur if any of the tendons or muscles are stretched beyond their limit- during sudden, explosive movements, such as sprinting, lunging or jumping,
  • Can also occur more gradually, or during slower movements that overstretch your hamstring.
  • Recurring injury is common in athletes and sportsmen, more likely to injure your hamstring if injured it before.
  • Preventive care - regularly doing stretching and strengthening exercises, and warming up before exercise, may help reduce the risk of injuring your hamstring.

How do I know if i've injured my hamstring?

Mild hamstring strains (grade 1) will usually cause sudden pain the back of your thigh. It may be painful to move your leg, but the strength of the muscle shouldn't be affected.

Partial hamstring tears (grade 2) are usually more painful and tender. There may also be some swelling and bruising at the back of your thigh and you may have lost some strength in your leg.

Severe hamstring tears (grade 3) will usually be very painful, tender, swollen and bruised. There may have been a" popping" sensation at the time of the injury and you'll be unable to use the affected leg.

When to see your physio -

It's not healing, or your symptoms are getting worse.

Your physiotherapist also advise you about when you can return to your normal activities and what exercises you should do to aid your recovery in the meantime. 

Rest and recovery

Recovering from a hamstring injury may take days, weeks or months but if you visit physio it mostly takes 10 to 15 days.

A completely torn hamstring (grade 3) may take several months to heal and you'll be unable to resume training or play sport during this time.

Initial treatment

During the first two or three days, you should care for your injury using rice therapy:

  • Rest – keep your leg as still as you possibly can and avoid physical activity, crutches in more severe cases.
  • Ice – apply cold packs 15 to 20 minutes every two to three hours during the day. Don't apply ice directly to your skin.
  • Compression – compress or bandage the thigh to limit any swelling and movement that could cause further damage. 
  • Elevation – keep your leg raised and supported on a pillow.

Hi... R2-10 is antilipid tablet.. While Telmisartan is Antihypertensive...so both are different medicines... My advise is to start her on homoeoapthic treatment otherwise the dose of telmisartan will go on increasing and she have to take more than one tablet as they are no curing hypertension ever.. they just control it..

My mother had left knee replacement 1 month ago.She is doing physiotherapy at home and has pain and heaviness of leg till now.When will it get reduced?operation was done on 30th January,2015.

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Full recovery from knee replacement can take up to 3-4 months and swelling can take upto an year to go, so don't worry as long as the the wound is healed and she is doing the knee mobilization and knee muscle strengthening exercises that would have been taught at the hospital. Try to keep the legs elevated when she's not walking to prevent leg swelling.

Hi, The briefing which you have given, suggest of generalised muscle weakness. It may be due to 1- lack of activities, 2- Lack of proper nutrition, 3- Or lack of optimum posture. Firstly you should concentrate on relieving your pain of lower back through regular Physiotherapy sessions n than you can go for general body Strengthning.

I have acute waist pain during one week for that I cannot sleep properly especially in morning please help me out.
This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There could be a lot of reasons for her pain, it may not actually be linked with her previous history of breast cancer and could just be degenerative arthrosis setting in the joints. I will advise for a fresh x ray (ap standing & lateral views) of affected knee and get her esr, crp, serum electrolytes and serum vitamin d levels done so that I can see and advise accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hi My dad is facing problem in his left leg from a few months and now the problem has become acute and we are still not able to find a good doctor who could determine what the actual problem is! a few days back he had severe swelling in his left lag. We went to the doctor who was specialized in veins[since my dad was saying he is feeling the pain and the stretch in veins]. He did sonography and xray and said everything is perfect this problem just might me due to the obesity[since my dad is a little obes, we thought it might be the reason] but those medicines dint workout and we asked us to visit the heart specialist. We went to the heart specialist and he did ecg and 2d sonography and gave medicines for heart saying that heart is facing pressure on the right side nd it is slightly increasing from that side. This pressure might be due to the pressure on lungs due to the weight issue. Then he referred us to a lung specialist, we went to him and he gave some other medications too. The swelling went down because of all the medications my dad took. But, his left leg is still paining a lot and on various part of his leg we can see the veins are getting infected the clusture can be easily seen with green color. I had somewhere read about varicose veins so I went to the doctor to ask if dad is suffering from it bbut he said no he is not! But, my dad is still facing a lot of problem and he cannot walk properly nor can he sit. Please help me.

Back Pain - 5 Ayurvedic Remedies For it

Back Pain - 5 Ayurvedic Remedies For it

Back pain refers to a severe pain in the back due to a strain in the muscle and the associated ligaments of the spine. Back pain is a fairly common condition and almost everyone has experienced it at least once in their lifetime. The pain can be either acute (pain in sudden bursts) or chronic (lasting for more than a month). Back pain generally tends to subside if one takes appropriate measures. 

You might experience the following symptoms along with back pain:

  1. Severe pain around the muscles which might stretch down to your feet
  2. Back pain will significantly limit the flexibility of your back
  3. If there are recurrent instances of high fever and severe gall bladder disorders along with the pain, a consultation with your doctor is highly recommended.

Back pain might occur due to the following reasons:

  1. Back pain might occur as a result of osteoarthritis (a disorder that is characterized by the breaking and wearing down of the flexible tissues at the end of the bones) and osteoporosis (a disorder marked by bones that are weak and brittle).
  2. It might occur as a result of a fatal accident or an injury.
  3. If you are a chain smoker and have a history of excessive alcohol or drug abuse, you are more likely to experience back pain.
  4. Back pain might also occur as a result of ageing, excessive weight gain, lack of regular exercising, cancer and instances of severe depression.

Ayurveda can be very useful for eradicating back pain. According to Ayurveda, back pain is caused due to the heightening of the ‘vata’ owing to an unhealthy diet, anxiety, and suppression of muscles, collectively called ‘dosha’. 

The Ayurvedic remedies for back pain are as follows:

  1. A regular intake of 30 ml of Aloe Vera juice in the morning might heal symptoms of back pain
  2. A regular intake of a mixture of 5g Triphala churnam mixed with water before retiring for the night might help to ease the general discomfort associated with back pain.
  3. Consume a medicinal preparation of 100ml of Black Gram (Urad Dal) daily for a week in order to get rid of the pain.
  4. You can also perform Paschimottanasana (an exercise where you have to touch the toes and repeat the same for a few times) and Vayu Mudra (an exercise where you have to move the index finger on the thumb base and the thumb finger in closed proximity to the index finger while the other fingers remain in a perpendicular position) to get rid of the back pain.
  5. Cut down on your consumption of pungent spices. This is because these pungent spices tend to have a drying effect on the body, that in turn, might lead to severe back pain, especially in the lower back along with constipation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

* walking regularly at slow pace without unduly straining helps as it improves blood circulation around ankle and eases the joint. *you can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take bryonia 200---twice daily morning and evening and give feedback after 7 days

Sir my leg is over pain, I have some treatment and medicine in hospitals, but no use for every thing pls help him.
For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.
