Re: Quick Hamstring Strain Problem

Dear James,

Thank you for posting your e-mail here.

Its better to use the this acronym:
P-protect
R-rest
I-ice
C-compression
E-elevation

Protect that injured part of your limb by not doing activities that can trigger or can even aggravate the symptoms you feel. Apply ice before and after you sleep for 15 minutes on the painful while wrapping around a non-elastic bandage and elevating it above the level of your heart.

Research shows that the primary reason for athletes to have hamstring strain is because of weak musculatures. Better start strengthening your weak hip muscles, while giving your thigh muscles a break. Dont drink too much alcohol because it can aggravate the swelling / inflammation on that painful area.
Respect pain...

keep me in touch always...!
