Webinar: Hamstring Injuries – Rehabilitation & Prevention to Return to The Pitch

From Fernando Torres to Michael Owen, hamstring injuries have often been witnessed on the football pitch, but they don’t have to be the end of the player’s career. In Torres’ book, ‘El Nino, My Story’, he summed up his journey with the injury: “The first time it happens you think it is normal and you keep going. The second time, you stop, you take more care and you start to ask yourself why it happened. The third time, you stop properly, you start to investigate the underlying causes and work as hard as you can to make sure it never happens again.” By ignoring the injury, Torres lengthened his recovery and recuperation period, but with the help of his rehab team, he was able to continue playing.


Dr David Porter, Sports Medicine Physician, and Mr Ian Gilham, Physiotherapist, will be combining their expertise to discuss the latest in rehabilitating hamstring injuries to ensure that your patients benefit from the best possible treatment.


They will be examining the epidemiology and classification of hamstring injuries, by comparing case studies from both elite sport and the general population. We will look at the heightened stresses and strains that elite sportspeople are under, such as making a speedy dash to outwit their opponents. This can result in one or more of the biceps femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus muscles being torn or snapped completely. Using scan images, we will be exploring what to look out for and how to diagnose these injuries accurately.


Dr Porter will be discussing the evidence-base for the debate surrounding PRP treatments, and, in extreme cases such as complete avulsion, surgical approaches. Mr Gilham will be delving into the phased rehabilitation process required to guide an individual from acute injury to return to play and will be discussing the use of pool sessions, to gym based strength and conditioning into pitch based sports specific drills. He will also be giving us the physiotherapists’ perspective on prevention strategies and importance of incorporating certain approaches in pre-season and in-season training to reduce the risk of hamstring injury whilst getting involved with the debate on Nordic hamstring exercises.


We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' on the day of the event.
