If you’re recovering from a torn, pulled, or strained hamstring (or any other thigh muscle) this thigh sleeve is perfect for you. When you’re recovering from a thigh injury, your weakened muscle is at a much higher risk for further injury or pain to occur. This thigh compression wrap surrounds your entire thigh with targeted compression, so you’re able to get back to doing the things you love without the need to worry about re-injury or painful muscle movements.
How Do You Know If You Pulled or Tore Your Hamstring?
Pain in the hamstring muscles of the thigh is extremely common, but there are a variety of specific injuries that could be causing your pain. To find the best treatment process to heal your hamstring, it’s important to know exactly what’s going on. So, how do you know if you pulled your hamstring or tore the muscle? It comes down to certain causes and symptoms. A torn hamstring is more severe, while a pulled or strained hamstring, while still painful, is more moderate.
Torn Hamstring Muscle
A torn hamstring is a step above a strained or pulled muscle, it is a complete or partial tear. This type of injury is a rip in the hamstring muscle that occurs when the hamstring has been overstretched or overloaded with too much weight and force. If a torn hamstring occurs, you’ll feel severe pain and not be able to straighten your leg, with immediate swelling. This injury will require multiple months of recovery and rest to fully heal.
Hamstring Strains and Pulls
Hamstring muscle strains will commonly cause sudden pain and tenderness to the back of your thigh. If you’ve pulled or strained your hamstring it will be difficult to move your leg due to the pain, but the strength of the muscle itself is still intact and should not be affected. A pulled hamstring will take some time to heal, but with proper rest, stretching, and heat or ice therapy, you’ll be able to get back to your daily activities.
Pulled Hamstring Recovery Time
You know you’ve pulled your hamstring, but how long will it take for things to start feeling normal again? The severity of your hamstring pull will ultimately determine the length of time it will take to heal. Mild strains can heal as soon as three weeks after the injury occurs if you’re resting and stretching properly at home. More severe tearing of the muscle can take months to fully heal. When it comes to recovering from a pulled hamstring, it’s important to not push yourself too fast or too hard. Slowly increase your physical activity, such as walking. As your hamstring heals and gets stronger, you can add more stretches and exercises. Wearing a compression sleeve as you begin to work back into physical activity and exercise is a great way to prevent further injury from occurring by protecting your weakened hamstring.
Understanding Muscle Strains: Why is my Thigh Cramping?
Notice a random, maybe painful, cramping going on in your thigh? Don’t worry, this is quite common for active men and women. The reasoning behind thigh cramps usually leads straight to overusing your muscles. This could be from running and exercise, or physical labor. Depending on the severity of the overuse of your quads or hamstrings, the pain of the cramps can be very mild, or extremely severe.
How to Stop Thigh Cramps
Cramping in the leg can be unpredictable, leaving you with shooting pain at inconvenient times. How do you stop thigh cramps from happening? The easiest way to get rid of thigh cramps is to give the affected leg some rest. Muscle overuse can cause painful cramps and the more you use those muscles, the more likely the cramping is going to occur. On top of rest, you should stretch out the affected area. For cramps in the front of the thigh (quadriceps), pull your foot up on the affected side towards your buttock, hold for 30 seconds and slowly release. If you have a cramp in the back of your thigh (hamstring), sit on a chair or the floor and slowly pull the top of your foot toward you with your leg extended out and straightened.
If you’ve been resting and stretching and still aren’t seeing progress with your thigh cramps, you may want to try hot or cold therapy along with the help of compression. Using heat, ice, and compression on the sore muscle can help relieve any inflammation and tension. To relieve inflammation try using an ice pack or ice roller. For relief from sore and stiffened muscles, try using a warm towel or heating pad. Wearing a compression sleeve while you’re walking around or completing other physical activities will provide comfortable, targeted compression to the muscles, which will reduce swelling and improve blood circulation.
