Treatments For Pulled, Strained Or Torn Biceps Femoris MusclesUsually a pulled or strained biceps femoris muscle will heal on its own, however if the pull or strain is severe enough, especially if there has been a tear, surgery may be necessary to repair the damage.
How To Treat A Pulled, Strained Or Torn Biceps Femoris MuscleRICE protocol is the best way to treat pulled, strained or torn biceps femoris or other hamstring muscles. RICE is compression with a bandage to avoid swelling in the muscle location, and keep the affected limb elevated.
Grade one pulled or strained biceps femoris muscles can take up to three weeks to heal. Grade two can take from four to six weeks. Level three are generally complete tears of the biceps femoris or hamstring muscles and may require surgery to repair.
The pain a grade three muscle tear inflicts can be very severe, and immediate medical attention is strongly advised.
