Progression of a Pulled Hamstring
Should You Seek Medical Attention for a Hamstring Pull?
This is up to your discretion; however any continued discomfort in your hamstring should be investigated. If you continue to experience the hamstring injury symptoms and have tried the suggested conservative treatments for 2-3 weeks, it is recommended that you seek professional medical attention. It is recommended you seek immediate attention if you:
- hear a "loud pop" in your muscle when injured
- have immediate severe pain, swelling or discoloration in your hamstrings
- experience severe weakness in your leg (compared to other leg) and have difficulty walking
- have a temperature over 100.4° F (38° C)
- notice blue toe nails, numbness or coldness below your injury
