Background: Hamstring injuries are the most common injuries suffered in soccer. While NHE has 1 gained interest in the recent years in preventing hamstring injuries inconsistent results and low 2 compliance raises question on its effectiveness. Hypothesis/Purpose: It is hypothesized that NHE 3 will be the most effective prevention program. Study Design: This is a systematic review of the 4 literature. Methods: A systematic electronic search will be carried out on the databases PubMed, 5 PEDro, SPORTDiscus, and Cochrane Library from inception to December 2019.Various keywords 6 were used to filter the appropriate studies. Risk of bias was assessed for the included articles. 7 Results: The search yielded a total of 1326 articles, after screening the records and assessing for 8 eligibility through the criteria set, 7 articles were included. Conclusion: Synthesis of the data 9 suggested NHE alone or in a preventative program was effective. Soccer -specific balance program 10 also showed promise. However due to the possible bias in the articles the level of certainty is 11 questioned. Clinical Relevance: It can be used to direct the hamstring preventive programs in soccer 12 clubs.
