Prognosis of Pulled Hamstring
Every patient progresses at a different speed, and transition from one phase to the next will depend upon the severity of the injury and the response to treatment.
One way of estimating how long it will take to recover from a hamstring injury is to know if the patient could walk without pain within a day. If this is not the case, recovery will likely take more than three weeks.
