For those who may be walking, training for a 5k, marathon or even your school’s track and field team you should know the impact of a hamstring strain .

Hamstring strains usually present as a sudden onset of sharp pain in the back of the thigh . If you suspect a hamstring injury, STOP RUNNING and use P.R.I.C.E . Protect, Rest, Ice, Compress, and Elevate. If the pain doesn't subside or gets worse, then it’s time to have your leg evaluated.

As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP), I can diagnose and create a treatment plan to help get you back out and running as soon as possible.
