High hamstring tendinopathy in rummers - Meeting the challenges of diagnosis, treatment, and rehabiliatation PHYSICIAN AND SPORTSMEDICINE Fredericson, M., Moore, W., Guillet, M., Beaulieu, C. 2005; 33 (5): 32-43


High hamstring tendinopathy is an uncommon overuse injury seen in running athletes. Patients typically report deep buttock or thigh pain. A detailed physical examination and, occasionally, imaging studies are necessary to confirm the diagnosis. Rehabilitation involves soft-tissue mobilization, frequent stretching, and progressive eccentric hamstring strengthening and core stabilization exercises. In recalcitrant cases, an ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injection into the tendon sheath can be helpful, and, occasionally, surgery may be necessary to release the scar tissue around the proximal hamstring muscles and the sciatic nerve.
