Hamstring Tear Rehab Protocol
Hamstring tear: Recovery depends on the grade and location of the tear. Tendon detachment from the bone may not heal if it retracts a distance from the insertion. If the tear is not significant then you might look up an accelerated rehab protocol. It is important to recognize that tears occur from trauma or muscle imbalance and proper strengthening is essential for recovery and to reduce future injury.

Grade 2 hamstring tear 2 days ago, heard pop, no bruise. Mobility low, but improving. Steep ski slope 3-mile mud run coming in 7 weeks. Advisable?
Cutting it close: A true grade 2 tear of a hamstring involves actual separation of muscle tissue and bleeding and subsequent inflammatory response locally. This can often be a 6 to 8 week injury to heal. This precludes the training required for the event and coming back too soon can lead to recurrent and actually a worse injury. A good course of physical therapy with a pt that understands the injury is beneficial.

Hi there, I have ruptured my ACL and have a tear in my meniscus. I was wondering should my leg stiffen right up between rehab exercises? Thanks
Listen to your body: When muscles become stiff following exercise they usually are too stressed. The injury may be putting more of a strain on muscles not previously used. Topical magnesium oil on stiff muscles can help them relax. Doing shorter sessions can help. Learn the routines taught in rehab and do 10 minutes 4-6 times a day every day to rebuild muscles. Avoid inflammatory foods.

It depends on age &-: - activities you engage in or what work you do. If a brace helps you can try that.
General guidelines.: Protocols, rehab or not, are just general standards to follow. In no way are protocols written in stone and often have to be adjusted or abandoned to fit the immediate needs and condition of the patient.See 1 more doctor answer
Torn Hamstring: It depends on the severity. In general grade 1 strains usually recover in under 3 weeks. Grade 2 strains/tears - 4 to 6 weeks. Grade 3 tears - 8 to 12 weeks. Typically surgery is not recommended and recovery involves rest, stretching, and controlled strengthening. However, if 2 of the 3 tendons are avulsed from the origin, early surgery to repair the tendon to the origin would be an option.See 1 more doctor answer
Rest first...: U want to rest a 'torn' hamstring first until it is nearly healed3-6 wks then can begin stretching : u can sit down and place your leg out straight, move your ankle back while u bend from the hip and touch your toes or heel. @ the same time u can have your opposite leg (knee) flexed to stretch your quads on other extremity. Maintain stretch and then switch sides... Best of luck!
Rest, gradual return: A torn muscle needs time to heal, and should be rested for at least 2 weeks. After that, be gentle - very slowly begin gentle stretches and low impact exercises. It is very easy to re-injure the muscle if you overdo it! A significant tear in the muscle will take 6-8 weeks before you can get back to a strenuous level of activity.See 1 more doctor answer
