Best Hamstring Supports for Hamstring Strains
Our first hamstring support is made from neoprene, meaning it can wick away moisture leaving the wearer more comfortable during exercise. A soothing heat is retained which helps to ease pain and tightness. Meanwhile, compression supplied to the thigh and hamstring by this support helps to reduce any swelling to the area. The combination of these benefits means a faster healing time, and protection against the common injuries suffered by runners and active sports players.

Another thigh sleeve mimics the support and action planes of key ligaments and tendons to reinforce them, targeting the area’s most in need of this support. The compressive element of the material also stimulates blood flow, which can help prevent the build-up of lactic acid both during and following activity. This helps in reducing the prospect of cramp and stiffness whilst also being a valuable recovery and rehabilitation tool to injury. Included in this advanced model is the six-way front adjustable strap system which overlays the base support and is fully adaptable, allowing for additional targeted support and compression to be applied to target or trigger points, whilst also ensuring a personalised fit.

Do compression shorts help hamstring injury?
Hamstring injuries, such as muscle strains, can cause pain, inflammation and depending on the severity of the tear, swelling or bruising. Compression shorts can help alleviate these early symptoms of muscular injury by improving circulation to the area and blood flow to help remove waste metabolites from the site.
Compression shorts are beneficial for preventing injuries by improving circulation and keeping the muscles of the thigh and groin warm. Some compression shorts like the P2 X Core Stability Compression Shorts are designed with integrated support to mimic the fascial lines around the groin and help to prevent injuries. When returning to activity after a Hamstring injury, wearing compression shorts can help to provide some support and improve confidence.
What is the best thigh compression sleeve?
Compression shorts are the most effective means of compressing the thigh and groin. If the injury is very specific, a strap such as the McDavid Groin Strap can help to relieve pressure and reduce pain around the groin. Often it is difficult to maintain compression on this tricky area after an injury, therefore compression shorts offer an effective method of maintaining compression and support throughout the thigh and groin region. Effective compression shorts such as; McDavid Cross Compression Shorts or P2 X Core Stability Compression Shorts can help to support injuries and improve blood flow to the area to enhance healing.
How long does a Grade 1 hamstring strain take to heal?
When the Hamstring muscle is overstretched, it can cause some of the fibres to tear. The injury can be graded between 1, 2 and 3, with grade 1 being the least severe and grade 3 being a full rupture of the muscle. Depending on the extent of the injury, a grade 1 tear will usually heal within two weeks. It is a good idea to follow the PRICE routine following a muscle injury; Protection, Rest, ice, Compression and Elevation, to help enhance healing and prevent the tear getting worse or developing into a grade 2 strain.
Compression shorts can help to alleviate symptoms of swelling, inflammation and pain by improving circulation to the area and supporting the thigh. If a return to activity is made too early, it can exacerbate the tear and prolong the healing process. It is always a good idea to seek advice from a Chartered Physiotherapist who can identify individual weaknesses and biomechanical issues that could predispose to a Hamstring tear as well as specific strengthening or stretching protocols to ensure the injury does not reoccur.
What is the cause of upper thigh pain?
Upper thigh pain can be caused by several different factors; Lower back posture, poor core stability, foot posture and muscular imbalances, which can all contribute to injuries around the thigh or groin. Sports that involve a lot of kicking activities, sprinting or changes in direction, such as football and rugby or hockey, can lead to injuries by straining the muscles around the groin and thigh. If you have sustained an injury, wearing compression shorts such as Harley Street Compression Shorts can help to alleviate some symptoms. However, it is always a good idea to seek an assessment from a Chartered Physiotherapist who can help identify any weaknesses or biomechanical factors that have contributed to the injury or prescribe strengthening or stretching exercises to help prevent future injuries.
