Symptoms of Hamstring Injury

With a Grade one Hamstring strain, the signs may not be present until after the activity is over. There may be a sensation of Hamstring cramp/ tightness and a slight feeling of pain when the muscles are stretched or contracted.

With a Grade two Hamstring strain there is immediate pain which is more severe than the pain of a grade one injury. It is confirmed by pain on stretch and contraction of the muscle. A grade two Hamstring strain is usually sore to touch.

A Grade three Hamstring strain is a very serious injury. There is an immediate burning/ stabbing pain and the athlete is unable to walk without pain. The muscle is completely torn and there may be a large lump of muscle tissue above a depression where the tear is.

Schedule A Consultation

The physiotherapist will require an initial 45 minute consultation with you. The consultation will involve a discussion of your symptoms and personal goals followed by a physical assessment. During the examination, your physiotherapist will be assessing your posture, joint range of movement, muscle tone, length and strength and, depending on your symptoms, may check your reflexes and sensation. On completion of your assessment your physiotherapist will give you a clear diagnosis, prognosis and discuss an appropriate treatment plan.
