The treatment of pulled hamstring is by: Rest, Ice, Compression and elevation. These 4 procedures are called the R.I.C.E. treatment plan You can read details in the following websites: http://sportsmedicine.about.com/cs/leg_injuries/a/aa031501a.htm http://sportsmedicine.about.com/cs/rehab/a/rice.htm http://www.medicinenet.com/hamstring_injury/article.htm Simple stretching exercises are very important. For the back of thigh stretch the leg forward, point the toes upward and hold the position for about 30 seconds. Then put down the foot. Try that and if you don’t find improvement you should go to the doctor. You should continue to rest from the bike. Good luck.
