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?

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
