Your hamstring muscles can be damaged or torn when you participate in sports and make sudden starts and stops.
We will examine you for swelling or bruising. We may recommend X-rays or MRI to confirm your diagnosis. Treatment may include rest, cold compresses, elevating your legs, pain medication and physiotherapy. If surgery is needed to repair a severe muscle tear, our orthopedic surgeons may be able to use minimally invasive techniques to minimize your pain and speed healing.
