Muscle Pain

What causes semimembranosus pain?

The semimembranosus muscle is the most medial, or central, of the four hamstring muscles. This inner thigh muscle can become damaged if overworked or too much strain is placed on the muscle too quickly.

This type of leg pain can result from numerous causes, such as sports injury, excessive exercise, or lifting something too heavy.

How do I know if I need treatment?

If your inner leg muscle feels sore, you may have a strain or tear in the tendon or muscle. This type of injury can affect your knee and groin, so safe and effective treatment might be needed to help prevent extending the length of your leg injury.

Once damaged, this muscle can be sensitive to repeated injuries if it does not heal properly the first time around. An effective treatment plan can alleviate pain, speed the healing process, and reduce the chances of future injury.
