Removed the section ‘Weak Hamstring Muscles’.

“It is a fact that stronger, more limber muscles are less prone to these kinds of repetitive motion injuries.

·         You'll want to concentrate on strengthening the muscles of your upper back, rear shoulder (this includes the rotator cuff muscles), spinal extensors, obliques, gluteals, quadriceps and hamstrings.

·         Likewise, you'll need to concentrate on stretching the muscles of your chest, back, hamstrings, hip flexors and neck.

·         Many, many individuals have excessively tight hamstrings (the back of your thigh) and chest muscles as a result of sitting at a computer or desk.

·         The imbalances that result from weak, inflexible muscles can lead to many avoidable aches, pains and injuries. Exercisealso helps control your body weight and reduce stress, two additional factors to consider.”

·           low back."

Thigh Exercises and Stretches

"Maintain good knee strength and flexibility and warm up before activities. The hamstring stretch and the knee-to-chest exercise are examples of exercises you can do to strengthen and stretch the leg muscles, especially the muscles in the thigh (quadriceps and hamstring)."

Increased risk of knee injury (instability) during knee extension activities, specifically when knees are flexed lower than 90°. Hamstrings / Quadriceps strength ratios should be greater than 56% to 80% depending on the population tested…" Common Muscular Weaknesses
