Introduction - Most of the athletes of all ages and sports and some active individuals, happen to have hamstring strain as most common injury in the group of active individuals. The main purpose of doing this work is to show the positive results and effects of acupuncture. Material and methods - In the research are included 8 professional athletes in different sports, male and female, on age from 17 to 55, all with symptoms of biceps femoris pain. All patients were treated with acupuncture, indoor, on room temperature, with duration of treatments of 25-30 minutes. Results - All of the patients needed only one treatment, expect for one female handball player, who needed 16 treatments to achieve positive results. Most of them had pain in the right leg (5 patients right and 3 left leg). Of the treated athletes 6 were male and 2 female. The most common age group was from 30 to 40 years. Discussion - If a person has an injury, around the injured area the flow of energy becomes disrupted, causing pain and stagnation. The hamstring strain is at the level of muscles and tendons, with stagnation of the Qi and blood in channels and collaterals. Conclusion - Acupuncture as a treatment for sport injuries, specifically hamstrings injuries, is an effective method for acute and chronic pain and gives excellent results for a very short time.
