HAMSTRING TENDINOSIS

Although I treat a fair amount of Hamstring Tendinosis in my clinic, I just as frequently treat “pulled” or torn hamstrings.  One of the unique characteristics of Hamstring Tendinosis is that it can effect either or both ends of the muscle.

Sometimes I see Hamstring Tendinosis at the upper attachment point of the hamstring muscles (the Ischial Tuberosity — often referred to as the “sits” bone), and sometimes I see it near the back of the knee.  It can occur either place, but is probably a bit more common behind the knee. 

HERE is our page on pulled, stretched, or torn muscles, and this next link is our page on HAMSTRING TENDINOSIS (find out why it is easily confused with ‘Weaver’s Bottom’).

 

BACK OF RIGHT LEG

On either side of the back of the knee are the tendons of the hamstring muscle.
