Recurrent Hamsting injuries?

Footballers and sprinters- you must be wondering what you are doing wrong?  What is causing you to have recurrent problems with your hamstring?

Now as with any injury, you should always consult your GP and or physiotherapist before commencing any new exercise…

So a big mistake when rehabilitating the hamstring is the lack of eccentric work… people tend to stretch and concentrically strengthen muscles which do not protect the hamstring when it is under the most strain. Eccentric contraction involves contracting a muscle in a lengthened position- in the case of the hamstring, this would be from knee flexion through to knee extension. This differs from concentric muscle activity where muscles are both contracted and shortened at the same time, this would be the equivalent of performing a hamstring curl

Nordic hamstring exercises are found to be quite useful in strengthening the hamstring muscle
