Best Hamstring Supports for Hamstring Strains

Our Hamstring Supports category features a range of leg supports that are suitable for relieving pain and giving you the support and comfort, you need when recovering from a hamstring injury. Hamstring supports made from neoprene are ideal for use during sports and exercise as it can wick away moisture making it more comfortable to wear during exercise. Hamstring supports with thermal compression are great option as a soothing heat is retained from the support which helps to ease pain and tightness. Meanwhile, compression supplied to the thigh and hamstring by this support helps to reduce any swelling to the area. The combination of these benefits means a faster healing time, and protection against the common injuries suffered by runners and active sports players.

We have thigh sleeves which mimics the support and action planes of key ligaments and tendons to reinforce them, targeting the area's most in need of this support. The compressive element of the material also stimulates blood flow, which can help prevent the build-up of lactic acid both during and following activity. This helps in reducing the prospect of cramp and stiffness whilst also being a valuable recovery and rehabilitation tool to injury. Adjustable straps on thigh supports create additional targeted support and compression to be applied to target or trigger points, whilst also ensuring a personalised fit.

Do compression shorts help hamstring injury?

Hamstring injuries, such as muscle strains, can cause pain, inflammation and depending on the severity of the tear, swelling or bruising. Compression shorts can help alleviate these early symptoms of muscular injury by improving circulation to the area and blood flow to help remove waste metabolites from the site.

Compression shorts are beneficial for preventing injuries by improving circulation and keeping the muscles of the thigh and groin warm. Some compression shorts are designed with integrated support to mimic the fascial lines around the groin and help to prevent injuries. When returning to activity after a Hamstring injury, wearing compression shorts can help to provide some support and improve confidence.

How long does a Grade 1 hamstring strain take to heal?

When the Hamstring muscle is overstretched, it can cause some of the fibres to tear. The injury can be graded between 1, 2 and 3, with grade 1 being the least severe and grade 3 being a full rupture of the muscle. Depending on the extent of the injury, a grade 1 tear will usually heal within two weeks. It is a good idea to follow the PRICE routine following a muscle injury; Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation, to help enhance healing and prevent the tear getting worse or developing into a grade 2 strain.

Compression shorts can help to alleviate symptoms of swelling, inflammation and pain by improving circulation to the area and supporting the thigh. If a return to activity is made too early, it can exacerbate the tear and prolong the healing process. It is always a good idea to seek advice from a Chartered Physiotherapist who can identify individual weaknesses and biomechanical issues that could predispose to a Hamstring tear as well as specific strengthening or stretching protocols to ensure the injury does not reoccur.

Thigh Supports for Hamstring & Thigh Muscle Injuries

Thigh supports made from neoprene and moisture wicking materials are ideal for use during sports and exercise as it can wick away sweat making it more comfortable to wear during physical activity. A thigh supports with thermal compression are perfect for the treatment and prevention of thigh and hamstring muscle strains. Compression helps to provide physical support and reassurance, while the therapeutic heat helps to increase and retain muscle temperature. This helps to make soft tissues more 'stretchy' and less prone to strain injury.

What is the best thigh compression sleeve?

Compression shorts are the most effective means of compressing the thigh and groin. If the injury is very specific, a thigh compression strap can help to relieve pressure and reduce pain around the groin. Often it is difficult to maintain compression on this tricky area after an injury, therefore compression shorts offer an effective method of maintaining compression and support throughout the thigh and groin region. Effective compression shorts can help to support injuries and improve blood flow to the area to enhance healing.

What is the cause of upper thigh pain?

Upper thigh pain can be caused by several different factors; Lower back posture, poor core stability, foot posture and muscular imbalances, which can all contribute to injuries around the thigh or groin. Sports that involve a lot of kicking activities, sprinting or changes in direction, such as football and rugby or hockey, can lead to injuries by straining the muscles around the groin and thigh. If you have sustained an injury, wearing compression shorts such as can help to alleviate some symptoms. However, it is always a good idea to seek an assessment from a Chartered Physiotherapist who can help identify any weaknesses or biomechanical factors that have contributed to the injury or prescribe strengthening or stretching exercises to help prevent future injuries.
