Hamstring injuries occur frequently, with a high recurrence rate, in sports that require either high-speed skilled movements or excessive hip flexion with knee extension. a previous hamstring injury is the greatest risk factor for a future hamstring injury, which has led sports medicine professionals to search for improved postinjury rehabilitation strategies. athletes may show postinjury structural changes in the muscletendon unit and be at risk for reinjury for up to a year after return to sport. understanding the postinjury changes can help create practical applications for appropriate reconditioning and sports performance programs.
