Hamstring (hamstring) play a role in straightening your hips and bend your knees.
Hamstring weaker than the quadriceps (front thigh muscles).
Cause Of Muscle Knee Injury
If the hamstring strength is less than 60% of quadriceps strength, the quadriceps will become stronger and can injure the hamstring.

Usually there will be a sudden pain in the back of the thigh when the hamstring contracts suddenly and with a vengeance.

As long as the muscles are still in the healing process, patients are not allowed to run or jump, but should still jog in place, row or swim.
Once the recovery begins, can do exercises to strengthen hamstring to help prevent recurrence.
