In this episode, I spoke with my good friend and colleague, Matt Wallden, the Head of CHEK Institute Faculty about hamstrings strains.
Matt completed a thesis on hamstring strains in elite football players as part of his Master's degree in Osteopathy over 20 years ago and consulted with elite sports teams, such as Chelsea FC and Wasps RUFC, as well as elite British sprinters.
So who better to discuss the how's, what's, and why's of hamstring strains, how to prevent them and how to rehabilitate from them than Matt?
