Hamstring Injury rehabilitation can be frustrating for athletes and therapists when rehab, ability to run and return to play is not happening as quickly as we would like. Expected recovery timeframes may not be met, and patients can turn to injections and other magic bullets to help get back to sport. Psychological distress and fear of movement/kinesiophobia may also result, which needs to be addressed throughout the rehab.
