HAMSTRING INJURY RECOVERY & REHAB
Hamstring injuries, including strains and tears, are particularly common in athletes, often caused by sudden powerful movements that over-stretch a tendon or muscle. They account for a quarter (24%) of all injuries in men’s professional football.
Recovery times for hamstring injuries can vary from around two weeks for a grade 1 strain, to 10+ weeks for a grade 3. Treating a hamstring injury quickly and effectively can optimise tissue healing and reduce the extent of the injury. Recovery times can be mitigated with effective use of cooling, heating and compression.

HOW EV1 CAN HELP
Cryotherapy is typically applied in the acute stage of an injury (up to 48-72 hours) to help with pain and inflammation. ProMOTION EV1’s cooling application can be set from 6 to 15 degrees – the optimal temperature range advised. The addition of the compression wrap allows you to apply controlled intermittent or static compression to tailor the optimal compression levels in response to the athlete/patient’s presentation.
Contrast therapy is typically used in the subacute stage of tissue healing. Introducing heat can be helpful when the patient is moving into the remodelling stage of healing, to aid with the alignment and pliability of tissues to make them stronger.
During contrast therapy, the blood vessels undergo rapid cycles of dilation and constriction, resulting in a pulsating effect believed to enhance blood flow and oxygen delivery to the tissues. This increased supply of oxygenated blood can lead to more efficient waste removal, improved functionality, and accelerated healing and recovery.
ProMOTION EV1 is easy to use, compact and fully-portable. It’s battery-operated and there is no need for ice, water or mains tethering, meaning can be used whenever and wherever you need it.

“I rented the EV1 to help with a hamstring injury. the contrast therapy with different compression levels, helped me feel more confident with no discomfort in my hamstring.”
Baba Rahman, Reading F.C.
I had a grade 2 hamstring tear. I used the ProMotion EV1 device during my rehab and felt it sped up my recovery. The convenience of the contrast therapy session was a huge benefit
“The targeted effect of this product where we can isolate and cool and area really specific and localised has massive potential for not putting an athlete back on the pitch in a detrimental circumstance
