Are you about to start your winter sport season and wondering how you can avoid the sideline sniper who picks off hamstrings with great accuracy? Here at Parkside we are preparing for our March epidemic of hamstring tears, especially in our Over 35 age group athletes.

- Previous muscle tears
- Inadequate rehab of previous injury
- Poor fitness, particularly a long layoff between seasons and high speed running
