This course will discuss hamstring injuries and prevention techniques and the steps and phases of return to play protocols. According to a systematic review, by the age of fifteen, 50% of them will have reported back pain. However, it is very hard to tell what is causing the back pain because most of them will never follow up suggesting that over time the pain goes away.
