How is a hamstring injury?

The main function of the hamstring is the stretching of the hip and the bending of the knee joint. the hamstring when running knee also helps. In many sports, these muscles are often shortened and explosive sports such as soccer and handball can easily hamstring strain or tear. The cause of this injury should be sought in an imbalance of the thigh muscles (muscle length and strength) and instability of the trunk and pelvic muscles.
