What is Hamstring Tendinopathy?
A proximal hamstring tendinopathy is a pathology of the high hamstring tendon where it attaches to the ischial tuberosity (sit bone of the buttock). Typically, we see this condition in runners who have suddenly increased their training volume/intensity, or started hill running. Those with a developed hamstring tendinopathy will complain of a deep, annoying buttock pain during activities such as hill walking, running and/or prolonged sitting/driving.
