Legs are responsible for our locomotion from point a to point b. Calves, quads, hamstrings and glutes all play an important role in getting you around. Hamstring injuries are particularly common, especially in athletes. Hamstring injuries happen to all types of athletes, from Olympic sprinters to slow-pitch softball players. Though these injuries can be very painful, they will usually heal on their own. But for an injured muscle to return to full function, it needs special attention and a specially designed rehabilitation program.
The knee is a sensitive area of the body and one that can be injured doing almost any activity. The knee is normally exposed and vulnerable and a simple twist can lead to a serious injury as well as ongoing problems and a long recovery time. Therefore, whether your sport is skiing or snowboarding, bowling or badminton, you cannot take chances with this body part.
