Hamstrings - Injury Prevention and Recovery

Hamstrings - Stretching Exercise for Injury Prevention and Recovery 

 

 

Hamstring stretches should be a common part of your stretching and flexibility routine 

Hamstring flexibility is important for all athletes and may help prevent injury and delayed onset muscle soreness, tightness, and trigger point activation, after exercise.

Tight hamstrings may also signal themselves early and be felt as even very minor restriction of motion when straightening the knee or in some cases may refer as a cramp at the back of the knee.
