MRI scan is needed for accurate grading of the injury.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir.

I understand your query and concern.

Grading of the hamstring injury cna be done only by two ways.

1.Clinical physical and neurological examination by Concerned Specialist.
2.MRI scan of the injured limb.

Please note Grading cannot be done based on the symptoms.

Please post your further queries,if any.
Thank you.
