Your hamstrings are a part of your body that you are rarely aware of unless they have been injured, and then it can be absolutely excruciating. Your hamstrings run up the backs of your legs, and create that ‘pulling’ sensation when you bend forward, keeping your knees straight. It is important to keep your hamstrings stretched and healthy so as not to injure them when playing sports or doing any other physical activity, although sometimes they can be injured just through bad luck. An accident could also cause a hamstring injury, but here are some ways to keep your hamstrings healthy and reduce the risk of injury and the need for a no-win, no-fee in Dunstable claim.
- Keep moving. The more you stand up and walk around the more your hamstrings are getting the exercise they need to stay healthy. Sitting for too long can make your hamstrings tighten and this will make it much more likely that they will be damaged in an accident or when doing physical activity.
- Stay a healthy weight. Being overweight or obese puts a lot of pressure on various parts of your body, including your hamstrings. If you bring your weight down then you also bring down the chances that you will be injured.
- Stretch regularly. Even if you don’t get regular exercise as such, or play any physical sports, you can still keep up your health and fitness by putting a stretching routine into your day to day life. Simple, low level stretches will keep all of your muscles and tendons loose and relaxed, so that they are less likely to be injured.
- Drink plenty of water. The more water you drink the better condition your body is in, and this counts for muscle condition as well, as water will stop dehydration, which leads to muscle cramps.
