Background: Hamstring injuries are the most common muscle injuries in soccer, and they have a high rate of recurrence. Eccentric hamstrings strength is recognized as an important modifiable risk factor. This led to the development of prevention exercises such as the nordic hamstring exercise (NHE). The effectiveness of the NHE on hamstring injury prevention has never been investigated in amateur soccer. Purpose: To investigate the preventive effect of the NHE on the incidence and severity of… Expand
Effects of Nordic Hamstring Exercise on Hamstring Injuries in High School Soccer Players: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
The Nordic Hamstring Exercise in high school soccer players significantly reduced hamstring injury severity compared to a control intervention, and the time-lost to injury rate should be taken into account when analyzing the severity of hamstring injury. Expand
Including the Nordic hamstring exercise in injury prevention programmes halves the rate of hamstring injuries: a systematic review and meta-analysis of 8459 athletes
TLDR
The NHE essentially halves the rate of hamstring injuries across multiple sports in different athletes, and programmes that include it reduce hamstring injuries by up to 51%. Expand
The Current Implementation of an Evidence-Based Hamstring Injury Prevention Exercise (Nordic Hamstring Exercise) among Athletes Globally
TLDR
Many athletes were aware of NHE and implemented it in their training routine since they found it to be effective in decreasing hamstring injury rates, however, additional work must be done to educate athletes about the importance of implementing this exercise and its effectiveness in preventing hamstring injury. Expand
P-7 Effect of injury prevention programs that include the nordic hamstring exercise on hamstring injury rates in soccer players: a systematic review with meta-analysis
TLDR
There is strong evidence that training programs that include the Nordic hamstring (NH) exercise decrease the risk of hamstring injuries by up to 51% in the long term compared with usual warm-up or training programs. Expand
Effect of Pre-training and Post-training Nordic Exercise on Hamstring Injury Prevention, Recurrence, and Severity in Soccer Players
TLDR
The use of NHE as a prevention protocol was effective in reducing all hamstring injuries with the use ofNHE during pre-training and post-training having the greatest effect. Expand
Hamstring injury prevention practices and compliance of the Nordic hamstring program in English professional football
TLDR
A cultural shift would be required mainly from players to allow successful implementation of the Nordic Hamstring exercise program, and medical professionals within English football value the injury prevention role of the NHP. Expand
Hamstring Injury Prevention Practices in Elite Sport: Evidence for Eccentric Strength vs. Lumbo-Pelvic Training
TLDR
An improved understanding of the evidence underpinning commonly employed hamstring injury prevention practices may enable clinicians and coaches to better prioritise effective strategies in the increasingly complex environment of elite sport. Expand
Hamstring Injury Prevention and Implementation
TLDR
This chapter aims to provide a detailed understanding of the available evidence for hamstring injury prevention and the practical considerations around implementing these prevention strategies. Expand
Influence of Maturation Status on Eccentric Hamstring Strength Improvements in Youth Male Soccer Players After the Nordic Hamstring Exercise.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a 6-week NHE program can improve eccentric hamstring strength in male youth soccer players, with less-mature players achieving mostly greater benefits. Expand
The effect of pre-exercise Nordic hamstring exercise on hamstring neuromuscular response during soccer-specific activity
TLDR
Although previous studies suggest performing pre-exercise NHE might impair maximal strength metrics, the current study’s results suggest that it does not impair the electromyographical response to subsequent soccer-specific exercise or NHE repetitions. Expand

TLDR
Eccentric hamstring strength exercises are hypothesised to reduce the incidence of hamstring injury among male amateur soccer players by 70%. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that addition of specific preseason strength training for the hamstrings – including eccentric overloading – would be beneficial for elite soccer players, both from an injury prevention and from performance enhancement point of view. Expand
Prevention of hamstring strains in elite soccer: an intervention study
TLDR
Eccentric strength training with Nordic hamstring lowers combined with warm‐up stretching appears to reduce the risk of hamstring strains, while no effect was detected from flexibility training alone. Expand
Preventive exercises reduced injury-related costs among adult male amateur soccer players: a cluster-randomised trial.
TLDR
The exercises failed to significantly reduce the number of injuries in male amateur soccer players within one season, but did significantly reduce injury-related costs. Expand
Effectiveness of an injury prevention programme for adult male amateur soccer players: a cluster-randomised controlled trial
TLDR
This study found no significant differences in the overall injury incidence or injury severity between the intervention and control group of adult male soccer players, and a significant difference was observed in the location of the injuries. Expand

TLDR
Findings indicate that the training intervention had a time-dependent beneficial effect on eccentric hamstring strength and that strength training conducted posttraining significantly reduced the negative influence of fatigue. Expand
Intrinsic Risk Factors for Hamstring Injuries Among Male Soccer Players
TLDR
Previous acute hamstring injury was found to be a significant risk factor for new hamstring injuries and previously injured players have more than twice as high a risk of sustaining a new hamstring injury. Expand
Risk factors for hamstring muscle strain injury in sport: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The aim of the current review was to assemble all available knowledge and data to identify the intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors associated with hamstring muscle strain-type injuries. Expand
Prevention of Injuries among Male Soccer Players
TLDR
The players with a significantly increased risk of injury were able to be identified through the use of a questionnaire, but player compliance with the training programs prescribed was low and any effect of the intervention on injury risk could not be detected. Expand
