072. Accelerated hamstring injury rehabilitation exercise selection and progressions with Jack Hickey
Injured athletes like to recover and return to play as quickly as possible, and we need to balance return to play against impaired strength, performance and risk of reinjury. Initial injury rehabilitation often commences with isometric exercises, progressing into concentric/eccentric style exercises when isometric tests are pain-free. Finally high load eccentric exercises such as the Nordic hamstring are introduced for their positive effects of increased strength, fascicle length and reduced injury risk.
High level and eccentric exercises are often avoided in the early stages of rehab, for fear of aggravating the injury. What if we could commence higher-level and eccentric exercises safely at an earlier stage? Would this impair or accelerate your patients' recovery?
In this podcast with Jack Hickey, currently completing a PhD with the QUT/ACU hamstring injury research group, we explore an accelerated hamstring injury rehabilitation program, and how this can be implemented with your patients. You will discover:
