When a problem persists, it's imperative to reevaluate both the model and the process. Hamstring injuries are not only recurrent but also on the rise (Premier Injuries, 2024). In this report, I delve into the primary causes and fundamental aspects necessary for understanding the structural issues surrounding hamstring injuries.

At Spandrel Analytics, our intervention model involves comprehensive consideration and evaluation of all factors, enabling us to tailor individualized rehabilitation and return-to-competition plans. You can find the complete report at the following link:

Football involves numerous actions that heavily engage both the hamstring and quadriceps muscles, subjecting players to significant stress from various sources, often leading to muscle overload.

The primary causes contributing to the high frequency of hamstring injuries in football include:

1.     Poor Technical Capacity: Insufficient technical proficiency can strain the hamstring muscles, increasing the risk of injury.

2.     High Acidosis Due to Inadequate Aerobic Capacity: The emphasis on 'Tactical Periodization' often neglects low-intensity activities essential for maintaining aerobic capacity, leading to elevated levels of acidosis that can predispose players to injury.

3.     Limited Leg Mobility/Flexibility: Inadequate stimulation of leg mobility and flexibility can restrict movement and increase susceptibility to injury.

Preventing musculoskeletal injuries requires a multifaceted approach, encompassing all aspects outlined in this report. Each aspect demands meticulous attention and objective evaluation to effectively mitigate risks.
