Hamstring Pain

Hamstrings muscles and tendons travel down the back of the thigh to the lower leg. Most hamstring injuries occur where the muscle and tendons join together and normally occur when a sudden strain is placed on the muscle. Pain at the back of the thigh and knee with swelling, bruising and weakness in the leg indicate hamstring injury. Immobilization, ice, rest, compression and elevation help the hamstring to heal, but complete tears usually require surgery. Recovery may take as long as three to six months after surgery, depending on the location of the repair.
