Dr. P. Jyoti :

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is something for which you should see a sports medicine specialist

Customer:

frustrating stuff... im not nearly in shape of a 40+ year old

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you are likely to be having a hamstring injury

Dr. P. Jyoti :

thats right

Customer:

and i compete against these people often

Dr. P. Jyoti :

restarting after such a long time can have caused this injury

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hamstring injury is most likely

Dr. P. Jyoti :

RICE - rest, icing, compression and elevation are the steps for acute injury

Customer:

really??.. on both hamstrings?

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but since it has been 6 months now show a doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

yes thats right

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you could have caused this injury because you started again from scratch

Dr. P. Jyoti :

chronic overuse injury

Dr. P. Jyoti :

a clinical examination will be sufficient

Dr. P. Jyoti :

your doctor may advise compression stockings and physiotherapy

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will not be the kind of injury that needs surgery

Dr. P. Jyoti :

however rehabilitation exercises are very important

Dr. P. Jyoti :

so best is to go to a sports medicine specialist for this
