Hamstrings

 The big group of muscles and tendons in the back of the thigh are commonly called the hamstrings. Injuries in this powerful muscle group are common, especially in athletes. Hamstring injuries happen to all types of athletes, from high school, college to the professional athlete, or “weekend warrior”. Though these injuries can be very painful, they will respond well to conservative management. Common chiropractic management strategies consist of manipulation restricted or dysfunctional joints of the knee and pelvis, followed by therapeutic exercise to promote proper muscle function of the supportive muscle groups around the pelvis, thigh and knee.
