Pulled Hamstring Remedy in Waterford, MI
A pulled or strained hamstring is felt as a sudden sharp pain at the back of the thigh and is a common example of a sporting injury. Hamstring damage can range in severity from an ache to debilitating pain that makes walking and movement difficult.
A hamstring is a group of muscles that run down the back of the thigh from the bottom of the buttocks to the back of the knee allowing the knee and the thigh to bend.
Hamstring strains or tears occur when the muscles become overloaded or suddenly stretched during activities such as sprinting or kicking. Most injuries result from sports such as soccer, basketball, football, and tennis, but dancers and runners can also face hamstring issues, too.
Causes of hamstring injuries include failing to warm up the muscles properly before strenuous exercise; a lack of flexibility and range of motion; tight quadriceps and weak glute muscles.
Hamstring injuries are also more common in muscles that haven’t completely healed from previous strains or tears. Causes of hamstring injuries include failing to warm up the muscles properly prior to strenuous exercise; a lack of flexibility and range of motion; and tight quadriceps and weak glute muscles.
Hamstring injury symptoms are hard to mistake and include a sudden pain often accompanied by a popping or snapping sensation during exercise. Pain can occur anywhere along the hamstring, from below the buttock to right above the back of the knee.
Chiropractic care that improves musculature strength in the hamstring and surrounding muscles is an example of a pulled hamstring remedy that increases the range of motion in the thigh.
Pulled hamstring remedy involves relieving pressure on the muscles and surrounding nerves and improving spinal and muscular health. Chiropractic care can increase soft tissue motion using deep tissue procedures, plus spinal manipulation or adjustments to free up joint motion in the lumbar spine, improving flexibility and mobility, and enhancing circulation that aids healing.
