Causes of Pulled Hamstring
The pulled hamstring is a colloquial term for a hamstring injury or a hamstring strain. The term “pulled hamstring” is derived from the cause of the injury which occurs due to the overstretching of a muscle or pulling. The overstretching might cause a minor strain on the muscle, a partial tear of the muscle or complete tear of the muscle.
