High Hamstring Tendinopathy


Tendon Pain

High hamstring tendinopathy is a condition that affects the tendons that attach the hamstrings to the ischial tuberosity, the bony prominence that acts as your “sitting bones”. It is commonly seen in athletes who participate in activities that require explosive movements or repetitive stress on the hamstrings, such as runners, sprinters, and soccer players.

The pathophysiology of high hamstring tendinopathy involves degeneration and microtears in the tendon, leading to pain and inflammation. Symptoms typically include pain in the buttock and/or hamstring region, especially during activities such as running or sitting for prolonged periods of time.

At Apollo Performance Chiropractic, we take a comprehensive approach to treating high hamstring tendinopathy. We begin by conducting a thorough evaluation to identify any contributing factors, such as muscle imbalances, poor mechanics, or training errors. We then develop a personalized treatment plan that may include manual therapy, exercise prescription, and state-of-the-art treatment technologies like shockwave therapy and blood flow restriction training.

Our treatment approach focuses on reducing pain and inflammation, promoting healing, and restoring function to the affected area. We also work with our patients to modify their training and lifestyle habits to prevent future injury.

If you are experiencing high hamstring tendinopathy, don't let it hold you back from your athletic pursuits. Contact Apollo Performance Chiropractic today to schedule an appointment and get on the path to recovery.
