Isn’t this the pressure that you, as a physical therapist, are put under every day? “How soon, how quickly, when, why, how come?”; “This is costing me money and time, I’m losing my place in the team, I have a race coming up…” Making that call of when a patient can return to full sport can be challenging; especially when there are coaches, sponsors, parents and the athlete all adding to the ‘drama’, as well as social media or the internet giving their own ‘advice’. There is a plethora of information out there regarding hamstring injuries, often confounding. You are not alone, even the research can be confusing and ill-defined. This article will look at the most recent research available regarding return-to-sport pre-requisites following a hamstring strain injury and enable you to get your patient to that point of readiness through the most current, and successful, rehabilitation protocols.
