Hamstring Strain Recommendations

Hamstring Strain Recommendations

  1. We recommend a hamstring sleeve/compression
  2. We do not recommend aggressive standard stretching
  3. We do not recommend icing after 24 hours
  4. We recommend early frontal plane movements according to the PATS(progressive agility and trunk stabilization) protocol.
  5. We recommend early return to sprint/return to run(PRES protocol) which is graded based on symptoms and clinical tests.
  6. We use hands-on manual therapy including active release technique, specific friction massage techniques over the lesion/scar and chiropractic mobilization and manipulation to the pelvis and lumbar spine.
  7. We like the Askling Exercise done daily by the patient.
  8. We have been experimenting with blood flow restriction training.
  9. We use high intensity laser therapy.
