WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP WITH PAIN FROM A HAMSTRING TEAR?
A hamstring tear or sprain can occur from overstretching 1-3 muscles that are located on the back of your thigh. The level of injury may vary from a mild strain/tear to a total rupture.
This can be caused when the muscles are overloaded, or move too fast in an explosive action such as sprinting or jumping. Common symptoms of a hamstring tear include pain, stiffness and swelling, bruising and an inability to properly walk or stand.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms and instabilities associated with pain from a hamstring tear.
The MyoTrain thigh brace is engineered to minimise the pain and tension you may feel in your hamstrings. The velcro straps and soft knit provides optimal compression for increased blood flow to allow for a comfortable wear as you make your way to recovery.
OLYMPIAN ATHLETE CATERINE IBARGUEN WEARS THE MYOTRAIN THIGH BRACE
Check out long jump, high jump and triple jump champion Caterine Ibarguen wearing the Myotrain thigh brace to treat her hamstring tear. Try out the MyoTrain for hamstring strain and hamstring tear injuries from rugby, athletics and tennis.
To prevent hamstring injuries, we recommend wearing thigh compression sleeves for the upper leg. The medical grade-compression stimulates circulation and depletes the lactic acid which builds up in the muscles and causes hamstring injuries.
