This injury can occur from large eccentric forces, especially if the muscles are already stressed or fatigued from overtraining. Most often the strain occurs at the proximal origin, but it may occur at the semimembranosus tendon, with pain along the posterior medial knee capsule.16
Regular de-stressing treatment can reduce the risk of this injury. Dry needling acupuncture is very effective in accelerating recovery during rehabilitation. The treatment should include not only the affected muscles but also the proximal and distal tendons, quadriceps muscles, and core system.
