Compresssion Wrap: You may feel some relief/ support w/ a compression wrap, but make sure that you have taken time tp complete a progressive return to activity (especially vigourous activity).

Wrapping a hamstring is not a substitute for hard work and dedication to good rehab/ physical therapy program during your recovery. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yo7v4nwpk-w.
