Week 5 Summer Reading Series

This week I came across a good reference article on hamstring injuries, The Management of Hamstring Injury – Part 1: Issues in Diagnosis. The discussion on anatomy and biomechanics is well written, as is the section on body mechanics. Great to see some discussion on the influence of lumbar-pelvic mechanics! If you are interested in the etiology and rehabilitation of hamstring injuries, this article also has an extensive reference list!

In relation to this article, I have also attached another reference, Hamstring Injuries Require Triplanar Assessment co-authored by Ron Hruska for Biomechanics in 2003.
