Hamstring Strain

A hamstring strain is an excessive stretch or tearing of hamstring muscles which are located at the back of the thigh. It is a common injury particularly seen in athletes who participate in sports activities that requires running, jumping, and kicking. During growth spurt the bones grow faster than the muscles. As a result, the muscle becomes tight and a sudden jump or stretch can tear the muscle away from its connection to the bone resulting in strain.
