Intramuscular Hamstring Injuries

Professor Peter Brukner is a sports and exercise physician at La Trobe University’s Sports and Exercise Medicine Research Centre in Melbourne. He is Team Doctor for the Australian Cricket Team and formerly worked with Liverpool FC, Australian football in the 2010 World Cup and numerous Olympic Games.

He discusses intramuscular tendon hamstring injuries, a difficult type of hamstring injury, which takes longer to recover than a typical strain. The conversation also branches out to diagnosis, management and rehabilitation of the injury.
