Hamstring Injuries in Cricket
Hamstring muscles run down the back of the thigh to the knee and are very active when batting, bowling, fielding or running between wickets and so are placed under a massive amount of strain.
If a hamstring injury occurs then there are 1-4 different grades of hamstring injury; with 1 representing an acute, indirect muscle disorder and higher levels representing structural muscle and/or tendon injury.
Therapyroom1 provides advice on hamstring injuries and treatment to:
- promote good healing
- gradually repair injury and strengthen the hamstrings and/or other muscle groups
- and progress exercises to prevent recurrence
Back injuries can place additional strain on the hamstrings and adjacent nerve structures.
In Part 3 we will look at Side Strain
