    Hamstring Injury?

    Hi all,

    Just after some advice - I have been having a problem with pain in the upper left leg where (I think) the hamstring attaches to the bone. I have assumed that it has been a hamstring tear, but am not so sure now that I have been investigating on physiotherapy sites.

    Basically, I have no symptoms of usual hamstring pain - no swelling, bruising, difficulties running or extending knee. The only problem I have is in kicking (either leg) but especially where the left leg is the supporting leg - height is severely limited due to pain.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Todd

    I am too tired and too drunk to make a detailed post on this right now. But keep this thread active and I'll get to it tomorrow.

    Pain can be caused by various things.

    You could've "popped" your hamsting rather than pulled it. This means you put enough tension on the muscle that some of the fibers tore( or fringed), but not all of them, maybe not even very many of them since you can walk fine, etc. It's like taking an elastic band, and pulling it tight really fast, some of the pieces of elastic will fringe, the same with your muscles.

    But that's just my first assumption of what could've happened.

    What Reikon describes is commonly referred to as pulling a muscle..

    How about the flexibility of the muscle? I think I pulled a muscle almost six months ago when I was sparring manchuria, and it hasn't regained full flexibility. Actually, it's still pretty tight. Very tight.

    Apart from that it's fine, so I haven't run screaming to a doctor.

    I define "pulling" a muscle as a complete or partial tear..and it hurts like a bitch...

    Hm. . .R.I.C.E. therapy (rest, ice, compress, elevate). Take a little time off, carefully returning to full activity. Not sure what to think, it could be a small tear, but it could also be more. See a doctor.
