Hamstring Injury Prevention
The hamstrings are three muscles on the back of the thigh and play a very important role when participating in sports.
They help athletes run and sprint faster. They also help reduce the risk of other injuries, like the ACL. When they are injured, it can be devastating to a season. Hamstring injury prevention is possible.
Soccer, football, baseball, dance, running, and cheer . . . while these are some of the most likely athletes to experience hamstring strains, these injuries impact the ability of many athletes to compete in their favorite sporting activities.
We’d like to do something to prevent hamstring injuries.

Our hamstring injury prevention program builds on our eight principles of training to help you reduce your risk of hamstring strains as much as possible. Hamstring injury prevention is about more than simply stretching; it is means you need to be more explosive while being stronger in specific ways. It is also about building resilience and developing greater fitness.
Our program helps to improve your strength, power, and tolerance to sporting stress in a gradual, progressive manner. Doing this consistently, and in a research-based manner will help you compete with less risk of injury and greater enjoyment.
The hamstring injury prevention program is 8 weeks long and is based on general strength, hamstring-focused strength, and plyometric exercises shown to reduce hamstring injury risk.
