  1. Hey, after recently having ACL recon, using hamstring graft, I have found no weakness when back to running, in my hamstring. After reading online that many people seemed to struggle with hamstring pulls when returning to running in (early stages). I first concentrate on regaining full ROM, and strength- I believe many people do not fully committ to their rehab this is why the uncounter problems with hamstring niggles. I am currently 4 1/2 months post surgery and starting cutting exercises to return to rugby within 7-8 months post surgery. What are your views on why people uncounter hamstring problems? Also any quick tips and helping me continue my return to rugby! I think your shows and Twitter page is great, it has been so Intresting learning about my injury. many thanks

    • I think many people struggle because you are sacrificing one or two of the hamstring tendons. Getting back to full strength is possible, but it can take a lot of work. Glad to hear your rehab is going well!
