Health Tip: Dealing With a Pulled Hamstring

(HealthDay News) -- A pulled hamstring is a common injury for athletes who play sports such as track, soccer and basketball.

Symptoms of the injury include swelling, bruising or discoloration and weakness in the hamstring.

Most hamstring injuries will heal with rest and won't require surgery, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says.

The academy suggests:

  • RICE, which stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
  • Immobilization. Your doctor may recommend wearing a knee splint to help your leg heal.
  • Physical therapy. Once the initial pain and swelling go away, physical therapy can help restore range of motion and strength.
