The Hurt Locker, with Joey Boland: Hamstring Will Return If Ignored


Hamstring strains can stunt a young GAA player’s growth and they can also shorten a career.

Ames O’Donoghue’s early retirement was the unfortunate result of a hamstring strain. Players with a fast, explosive style like O’Donoghue are at high risk for this type of injury, and once you’ve strained your hamstring, you’re at increased risk for a recurring strain, so be prepared for it. Putting together a long-term recovery plan from initial stress is key.

At Sports Physio Ireland, we take a structured approach to hamstring strain prevention and rehabilitation.


Getting back to full hamstring length after an injury is important. At a minimum, players should be able to demonstrate basic flexibility by comfortably touching their toes from a seated position.
