I have undergone ACL surgery (Hamstring graft) almost three years ago but still suffer from hamstring problems in the same leg (Left). Under strength testing it is significantly weaker than my right but strength training does not seem to work as even with light weights on supine curls or eccentric exercise the muscle seems to go into spasm and remains tight, ultimately making sprinting or matches virtually impossible. Furthermore recently i have begun to notice symptoms in my adductors after heavy exercise presumably secondary to the de-training effects and also now i have noticed symptoms of left sided sciatica while driving for more than an hour. After the surgery i done a reasonable amount of the rehabilitation and know friends who are now fine after doing far less. I am struggling to get back football at anywhere near the level i was previously at and would appreciate any insights.
