Abstract

Neuromusculoskeletal models are used to investigate hamstring mechanics during sprinting. We show that peak hamstring stretch occurs during late swing phase and is invariant with speed, but does depend on tendon compliance and the action of other muscles in the lumbopelvic region. The insights gained are relevant for improving the scientific basis of hamstring strain injury prevention and rehabilitation programs.
