Why Nordic Hamstring?
Hamstrings are the most commonly injured muscle in sprinting and
kicking sports (soccer, football and rugby).
Recurrent hamstring injuries lead to longer time loss than the original injury.
Despite the presence of preventa- tive programs, research has not yet documented an effective, low-cost, widely accessible test to determine hamstring injury risk.
