Hamstring strain injuries are the most prevalent injury in many running based sports. Despite a significant increase in the development of prevention and rehabilitation programs, the injury still occurs and reoccurs frequently. This presentation will provide clinicians, students and researchers alike an insight into work completed by the QUT and ACU Hamstring Injury Group over the past 3 years. This work focuses on what effect a previous hamstring strain injury has on strength, activation, architecture and the role that inhibition has in all of this. A novel evidence based integrated framework to underpin the primary causes of hamstring strain injury will also be presented. This presentation will then introduce processes, using this evidence-based framework, which may assist in the rehabilitation and prevention of hamstring strain injuries.
The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 13 October 2014.
Ryan Timmins is a PhD candidate as part of the QUT and ACU Hamstring Injury Group. He completed his honours project in 2011 investigating the role that repeat sprint running has on hamstring strength and injury risk. He is now into his 2nd year of his PhD, under the supervision of Dr David Opar, investigating the various maladaptations which occur following a hamstring strain injury.
Matt Bourne is a PhD candidate as part of the QUT and ACU Hamstring Injury Group. He completed his honours project in 2012 investigating the role that previous injury has on muscle activation during the Nordic Hamstring Exercise. He is now into his 2nd year of his PhD, under the supervision of Dr Anthony Shield, investigating the various maladaptations which occur following a hamstring strain injury.
The QUT and ACU Hamstring Injury Group’s most prominent work in hamstring injury prevention and prediction has been the development of a field testing device for eccentric hamstring strength. The QUT and ACU Hamstring Injury Group’s collaborative partners include elite soccer, Australian football, rugby union, track and field, cricket, various state academies and institutes. Ryan also works in the professional sporting environment, implementing a real world approach to evidence-based prevention and rehabilitation processes.
