Thigh injuries

Injuries to the thigh are relatively common in athletes. Muscle injuries predominate, such as contusion injuries which often occur in soccer. Muscle strains are common in explosive sports such as sprinting, involving especially the hamstring muscles. Other causes of pain are stress fracture, compartment syndromes, and referred pain. Vague pain in the thigh may be caused by stress fracture or by sciatica.
