Pulled Hamstring

Pulled Hamstring is a strain or tear in the muscles that run along your back thigh, often caused by injury. Most hamstrings will heal with rest, but if your pain is severe or does not fade with time, contact a healthcare professional at a nearby Carbon Health. Serious cases may require surgery.
The symptoms of a pulled hamstring may include sudden pain or a popping sensation at the back of the thigh, swelling or bruising, tenderness when touching the affected area, weakness or difficulty moving the leg, and a cramping sensation. Depending on the severity of the injury, treatment may involve rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the leg, as well as physical therapy to help regain strength and flexibility.
