Hamstring injuries are common in sport and physical activity that involve sudden explosive movements, such as in sprinting.

The hamstrings consist of 3 large muscles, the Semimembranosus, Semitendinosus, and Biceps Femoris.

Hamstring injuries can be categorised simply as:

  • Grade 1: Mild pull or strain
  • Grade 2: Partial muscle tear
  • Grade 3: Complete muscle tear

Or in more detail, outlined by British Athletics Muscle Injury Classification

Below is a selection of hamstring rehabilitation exercises we use for hamstring injuries.
