As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Hamstring injuries are common among athletes and individuals who participate in activities that involve sprinting, jumping, or sudden changes in direction. These injuries typically occur when the muscles and tendons of the hamstring group, located at the back of the thigh, are stretched beyond their limits or subjected to sudden, forceful contractions. Hamstring injuries can range from mild strains to severe tears, causing pain, swelling, bruising, and difficulty walking or bending the knee. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of hamstring injuries, offering comprehensive care to promote healing and restore function.

When you experience a hamstring injury, it can significantly impact your ability to perform sports or activities that involve lower body movement, leading to functional limitations and decreased performance. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process with a thorough assessment of your injury, often utilizing physical examination maneuvers and imaging studies such as ultrasound or MRI to accurately diagnose the extent and severity of the injury.

Treatment options for hamstring injuries at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Conservative management: For mild to moderate hamstring strains, conservative treatments such as rest, ice therapy, compression, elevation, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be recommended to reduce pain and inflammation, promote healing, and prevent further injury.
  • Physical therapy: Our experienced physical therapists design specialized rehabilitation programs focused on stretching, strengthening, and proprioceptive exercises to improve flexibility, muscle strength, and coordination, restore normal movement patterns, and prevent recurrence of hamstring injuries.
  • Regenerative medicine: We offer innovative regenerative treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections or stem cell therapy to stimulate tissue healing and repair for chronic or severe hamstring injuries.

Minimally invasive procedures: In cases of persistent pain or limited response to conservative treatments, we may offer minimally invasive procedures such as ultrasound-guided injections or percutaneous needle tenotomy to target and treat the underlying cause of hamstring injuries effectively

Our team of experts will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.

We offer everything from chiropractic care to massage therapy to acupuncture. And our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with the latest technology to ensure you get the best possible care.
