Muscle tightness is caused by a decrease in the ability of the muscle to deform, resulting in a decrease in the range of motion at the joint on which it acts. Tightness in hamstring muscles leads to hamstring injuries and hamstring injuries are the most common type of injury among athletes. These injuries are slow to recover, make high health expenditure and decrease the performance level of the athlete. The objectives of this study are to find the prevalence of the hamstring tightness in football players and whether there is a relationship of hamstring tightness with body height; femoral length; duration of warm-up and cooldown period. This study is a preliminary study on the characteristics of the football players and the nature of the injuries they encounter.
