The Hamstring group is made up of 3 muscles which attach from behind the knee to a bony prominence in the buttock and thigh bone. The Hamstrings work to control bending of the knee and taking your hip back behind you. Typically an overuse injury and commonly seen in runners, kicking or jumping sports. The Hamstrings are prone to this type of injury as they control the slowing down of a straight knee during activities such as sprinting and hill climbing.
