Best exercises to treat hamstring injuries
The Hamstring muscle group consists of three muscles which are located at the back of your thigh. The primary function of the hamstring is to bend your knee, but it also assists in moving your hip back.
Hamstring injuries are one of the most common injuries in sports. Particularly in sports which require repetitive movement, fast acceleration and deceleration, and change in direction. This includes, but not limited to: football, rugby, basketball, running and cycling. One of the main reasons why hamstring muscles are prone to injuries is because it is a biarticular muscle, meaning it spans two joints, which are the bottom of your hip and the knee.
