Hamstring Strain Signs And Symptoms

Hamstring Strain

Hamstring strain is a common injury of the hamstring muscles that results in posterior thigh pain. Like calf strain, hamstring strain commonly affects individuals who participate in high-impact sports such as football or basketball and can severely affect your ability to walk or run after.

Calf Strain Signs and Symptoms

Calf Strain

Calf strain is a common injury of the calf muscles that results in posterior leg pain. It commonly affects sports athletes or enthusiasts participating in activities such as football, tennis, or sprints.

Like other muscle strains, such as hamstring strain, a calf strain requires proper management to minimise recurrence risk.

Leg Length Discrepancy Assessment

Leg Length Discrepancy

Leg length discrepancy, or leg length inequality, is a common condition that can cause foot pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain, or back pain. This condition is characterized when one of the lower limbs is longer than the other. There are multiple factors that can cause leg length discrepancy, ranging from congenital (inborn), to injury-related, to iatrogenic (past medical treatment such as surgery). A leg length discrepancy of less than 1cm is often considered mild and some individuals may be asymptomatic. However, leg length discrepancy can cause tightness and stress on one side of the lower limb or body over time and is an associated risk factor for many musculoskeletal conditions of the lower limbs.

Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin Splints)

Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), commonly known as shin splints, is a condition that causes pain along the inner side of the tibia (shinbone), particularly nearer to the ankle. This condition commonly affects runners and patient often reports throbbing pain or ache during runs.
