Hamstring injuries represent one of the most common musculoskeletal pathologies in sports, accounting for 12–29% of all athletic injuries, with the potential for substantial disability and morbidity. Injuries to the hamstring consist of a spectrum of disorders ranging from strains to partial and complete tears. Chronic pathology related to misdiagnosed or undertreated hamstring tears is common, increasing the risk of reinjury and further disability. Hamstring injuries and disorders have also become increasingly recognized in the aging population, as older adults remain physically active with participation in recreational sporting activities.
