Pulled Hamstring Physiotherapy Singapore

Hamstring injuries are pretty much common in most sports and sometimes is also known as "pulled hamstrings". I recall when I was playing catching with my dad, he too had a pull hamstring and it showed pretty obviously as a bruise at the back of his thigh.

The term "pulled muscles" really describes how the muscle injury happens - usually, the hamstring muscle is by force stretched beyond its limits, and this causes micro-fibres of the muscles to tear.

Such hamstring strains are one of the most common sports injuries, and they tend to happen in activities or sports that has high speed sprinting and kicking. Most of the time, hamstring injuries is more likely to happen during the late swing and late stance phase of running, and is known to cause a lot of downtime from training and competition.

Pulled Hamstring Physiotherapy Singapore Symptoms

Grade One Hamstring Strain

the signs and symptoms may not be so obvious or present until after the activity is over. There may be a sensation of Hamstring cramping or tightness and a slight feeling of pain when the muscles are stretched or contracted.

Grade Two Hamstring Strain

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

Grade Three Hamstring Strain

A very serious injury - there is usually an immediate burning or stabbing pain and the individual 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. Bruising will appear below the injury site.

Pulled Hamstring Physiotherapy Treatments

Following a hamstring strain, we need to immediately apply the POLICE protocol:

  • Protect
  • Optimal Loading
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

Then, when the injury is ready, we start with providing gentle exercises with resistance as well as stretching to align the scar tissue that forms during the healing process. This will help to enhance the strength of the healing hamstring.

Our specialist physiotherapists will customize your rehab program for you (ie sports/activity/work specific) and guide you through the process of returning to sports and life successfully and decrease the risk of recurrence.
