    Designed for sports medicine professionals and strength and conditioning coaches, this course presents the latest evidence in assessment, rehabilitation, and return-to-play criteria specific to hamstring injuries so that health care providers and coaches can get their athletes back in the game as quickly as possible while minimising the risk for reinjury.



    None – however this type of learning activity contributes towards CPD and is beneficial as an addition to a CV






    • Describe the functioning of the hamstring muscle during sprinting
    • Explain the factors that are associated with recovery from a hamstring injury.
    • Identify the sports and activities in which hamstring strains are common.
    • Describe the anatomy of the hamstring muscle complex.
    • Describe the pathomechanics of hamstring strains that occur during sprinting.
    • Explain how the pathomechanics of hamstring strains resulting from running injuries may be different from those resulting from kicking and dancing.
    • Identify common pathomechanics associated with proximal and distal hamstring tendon avulsions.
    • Identify common risk factors for acute and recurring hamstring strains.
    • Discuss the efficacy of flexibility, strength, and neuromuscular control training in preventing hamstring strains.
    • Develop a hamstring injury prevention program based on evidence regarding the effectiveness and practical applications of stretching, eccentric exercise, and neuromuscular control exercises.
    • Differentiate between the signs and symptoms of referred pain and hamstring strain pain.
    • Identify gait patterns common among individuals with an acute hamstring strain.
    • List the advantages and disadvantages of MR imaging in hamstring injury diagnosis and prognosis.
    • Evaluate a client’s hamstring injury.
    • Explain when elevation may be contraindicated and need to be modified.
    • Describe the research findings regarding the efficacy of functional testing.
    • Compare and contrast Worrell’s and Jull and Richardson’s treatment theories.
    • Identify the differences in the outcomes of a PATS rehabilitation program versus those of a typical strengthening/stretching rehabilitation program.
    • Develop a PATS program for individuals with hamstring strains.


    Interactive case studies provide real-life practice in identifying high-risk athletes and using evidence-based rehabilitation and treatment approaches to develop prevention programs. A companion student text goes into further detail regarding research findings and the efficacy of functional testing. This electronic text includes 34 photos and video clips of exercises that provide demonstrations of unique exercises—such as progressive agility and trunk stabilization (PATS)—specifically designed for the rehabilitation and prevention of hamstring injury.

     Although you will have access to the course and test portion for only one year after beginning coursework, you will have access to the student text and videos indefinitely, so you will always be able to reference the information at hand.
