Is eccentric strength training effective in the prevention of hamstring strains in otherwise healthy individuals? Amanda Beers, Krystie Cheong, Andrew Grant, Osita Hibbert & Trevor Moizumi Supervisor: Dr. Darlene Redenbach Outline „ Introduction „ Methods „ Results „ Discussion „ Limitations „ Future Research „ Conclusion INTRODUCTION Hamstring Strains: Prevalence „ 1o soft-tissue injury in recreation & sports (Arnason, 2007) „ 29% of injuries in sprinting „ 16-23% of injuries in Australian Rules football „ Activities: sprinting, jumping and kicking „ High recurrence rates: 12-31% (Petersen, 2005) Hamstring Strains: Concerns „ High recurrence rate „ Loss of function „ Long period of recovery Petersen et al. (2005) Hamstring Strains: Anatomy „ Posterior thigh triad „ Bi-articular arrangement: Hip & Knee „ Common site: Biceps femoris musculotendinous junction Petersen et al. (2005) & Thelen et al. (2006) Hamstring Strains: Risk Factors Intrinsic: „ Age „ Sex „ Ethnicity „ Previous injury „ Lumbopelvic instability „ Hamstring flexibility „ Hamstring strength „ Muscle imbalance Extrinsic: „ Fatigue „ Lack of warm-up „ Inadequate preseason training Most significant predictor of strain Petersen et al. (2005) Hamstring Strains: Biomechanics Proposed mechanism for hamstring strains: „ Rapid phase change eccentric to concentric „ Hamstrings = maximally loaded & lengthened (Hoskins et al., 2005) E.g. Hamstring muscle action during gait: „ Late swing: eccentric contraction „ Heel strike: concentric contraction (Proske et al., 2004) Eccentric Training Subsequent bouts of training: „ Shift in the length-tension curve „ Peak tension generated at longer muscle lengths „ Protective effect against exercise-induced damage (Clarkson et al., 1988) Proposed mechanism: „ Sarcomeres added in series „ Optimize angle of peak torque „ Reduce risk of potential injury (Brockett et al., 2001) Rationale „ Lack of consensus with respect to the appropriate management of hamstring strains „ Role of eccentric training in 1° & 2° prevention of hamstring strains not clearly defined Research Question Is eccentric strength training effective in the prevention of hamstring strains in otherwise healthy individuals?

However, generalization of findings is limited due to a lack of high level trials. „ Until more evidence becomes available, concrete recommendations to support or counter the application of eccentric training protocols for the 1° & 2° prevention of hamstring strains cannot be made.
