Torn hamstring healing time

Torn hamstring healing time depends on the severity when there is a full tear the hamstring rolls all the way up the leg and it’s severely painful worse than like breaking a bone those usually take around 3-6 months depending on how bad it is and how quickly the body recovers.

A pulled hamstring takes 4-6 weeks. Patients are advised to stretch it during that time period, at the start it will be really uncomfortable to stretch but it will help heal it faster, also ice is recommended to reduce swelling. Before stretching it is best to use a heat pad to warm up the area it’ll allow the patient to stretch better and prevent further tearing.
