Pulled hamstring, pain on lifting leg up, no pain on running. Treatment?

I pulled my hamstring almost 2 years ago and have done dance and cheer, this was my first summer of not being busy with anything because i just graduated. It doesn t hurt when i run or anything, just when i lift my leg up to the side with knee still straight up. I don t understand why it is still hurting after all this time AND the over summer break. Any ideas why?

Thanks for your query.

From description , it seems you might developed hamstring tear.
Now after 2 years if pain is severe ,I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.
Meanwhile following measures will help with the pain
• Anti -inflammatory drugs like Tablet Motrin 1 tablet as and when required
• Avoid strenuous activity & lifting heavy weights.
• Apply diclofenac gel on the affected area. Warm compresses will also help.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
