Anatomical and biomechanical features and the subject's training background make hamstring strains common in sport, especially in disciplines requiring speed and strength. Rehabilitation must be consonant with the chronological sequence of the acute and healing stages of biological muscle strain repair and recovery of function. Hydrokinesitherapy, stretching, concentric and eccentric exercises, physical therapy, isokinetic dynamometry and proprioceptive training are useful components of a rehabilitation programme. Prevention of recurrences, not speed of recovery, is the goal. Recurrence within two months from the resumption of sport, in fact, is often an indication of inappropriate rehabilitation.
