Physiotherapy for hamstring strain

An extremely common type of injury faced by athletes or players is a hamstring strain. This condition refers to the tearing or straining of the large muscles (tendons) at the back of the thigh. These tendons are responsible for the motion and flexibility of a person and hence a strain in them can be very painful in its severest form, restricting movement.

Although painful, hamstring injuries are generally not dangerous. However, the rate of re-injury is very high in this case, majorly due to inappropriate rehabilitation. Most doctors would suggest physiotherapy for hamstring strain at the time of recovery. These programs, if done properly and in a disciplined manner, can reduce the risk of being injured again.

    

The term hamstring refers to strong bands of tissue, connecting the thigh bone to the muscle, as well as, a group of 3 muscles that run from the hip to just below the knee along the back of the thigh. These are relatively more utilized during physical activities like jumping, climbing or running, thereby increasing the chance of injury while participating in an active sport.

The hamstring is said to be injured when any of these muscles or tendons are strained beyond their limit or get torn due to a sudden movement. The severity of hamstring injuries is classified in 3 grades, viz.

Grade 1: This is of minimum severity and can be caused by a mild muscle pull or overstretching. The injury may not be visible, however, there will be pain and difficulty in moving.

Grade 2: This type of hamstring strain is of slightly higher intensity than Grade 1 and is caused due to a partial tear in the hamstring muscles. The patient will have difficulty in movement, some swelling in the injured part and some amount of bruising as well.

Grade 3: This is the severest form of a hamstring injury and is caused by a complete tear in the hamstring muscle. This is extremely painful and may restrict movement completely for the injured. Other symptoms include swelling and bruising of the thigh.

In any of the above type of injuries, it is a must to visit a trained specialist for treatment and on their recommendation, it is a good practice to go in for hamstring physiotherapy.

The treatment for a hamstring strain involves actions that can easily be done at home and unless it is a severe grade 3 tier, there is no need for surgery. Your doctor will advise you to go for surgery, only if he or she thinks it is required. Otherwise, you will be expected to do the following actions, known by the acronym RICE.

 

Rest – This refers to giving complete rest to your leg and avoid any weight or strain on it. In case of severe pain, you may be advised to use crutches by your doctor to rest your leg.

    

Ice – A cold compress with ice is very helpful in reducing swelling as well as the pain. A thumb rule adopted by most doctors and physiotherapists is to give a cold compress to the patient for 20-30 minutes, every 3 – 4 hours for at least 2 to 3 days.

    

Compress – By this it is meant that your leg should be compressed in an elastic bandage tokeep the swelling in check.

 

Elevate – While resting, it is advised to place a pillow or other support to keep the leg elevated.

 

Apart from this, the doctor may prescribe some anti-inflammatory painkillers to keep the pain in check in the initial few days.

 

Unlike most other problems, exhaustive physical therapy produces much better results and faster recovery for patients. Hence, with any other treatment, the doctor would most certainly prescribe physiotherapy for hamstring strain. When you visit a physiotherapist for the first time, they will make the following evaluations to assess your condition and set your objectives.

 

Medical History Assessment – this is important to understand whether or not to structure a program for you and if yes, how should it be done

 

Palpation – your physiotherapist will examine your injury by touch to assess the exact situation of your hamstring and thigh muscles

 

Evaluate ROM and Flexibility – these are very important to keep you moving and hence need to be assessed before starting the hamstring physiotherapy.

 

Strength, Mobility and Balance Evaluation – these are the essential functions supported by the hamstring muscle. Hence, the physiotherapist needs to evaluate their situation before going for any treatment.

 

After completing your assessment, your physiotherapist will work with you to create a treatment plan that will cater to your specific requirements. Most common objectives for physical therapy include improving ROM and flexibility, keep the pain and swelling in check and restore the normal and optimum functions as soon as possible. For this, the physiotherapist may use any of the following methodologies

  • Massages
  • Ultrasound
  • Kinesiology Taping
  • Electrical Simulation
  • Gait Training
  • Heat / Ice

As we saw earlier, one of the most important aspects of recovering from a hamstring strain is getting back the regular agility and flexibility for activities like jumping, running and climbing stairs. Thus any program of physiotherapy for hamstring strain, exercise is a critical component.

 

The physiotherapist may start with mild stretching and home exercises in the initial days and may move on to more difficult exercises for improving the functions. These may include

 

  • Hamstring Stretches
  • Strengthening Exercises for the lower extremity
  • Strengthening Exercises for the hip and core
  • Agility drills including exercises like hopping, jumping and other active sports
  • Exercises for improving balance

Our expert team of physiotherapists is specifically trained to meet the individual needs of every patient. They work with your doctor and other medical staff to keep a watch on your progress and make track changes wherever required.

How We Made A Difference

  • hamstring physiotherapy, Hamstring  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • hamstring physiotherapy, Hamstring  Most horrible services. Please do not ask for help from these people, they will talk sweet and then at the last moment there will be no shows from the caretaker. I had to go through this not once but twice the caretaker did not turn up. Request you all to not depend on these people as we are leaving our homes and letting them into our lives, the least they can do is inform and provide a replacement, but neither of it happened and they expect me to pay registration fees of RS,1000

  • hamstring physiotherapy, Hamstring  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended
