The thigh lexor muscle complex, universally known by the collective name of hamstring, is one of the muscle groups most affected by indirect muscle injuries. In addition, also the number of re-injuries is extremely high. The hamstring lesions are also particularly complicated by the rehabilitation point of view because of the dificulty of their healing process. This dificulty of biological healing can be explained by the particular anatomical structure of this muscle group. In addition, the biomechanics of the sport movement can substantially affect the injury anatomical location.
