The three hamstrings all have tendons which originate from the deep bone in the bum, the Ischial Tuberosity, and then attach to the tibia or fibula beside the knee. High Hamstring tendinopathy is such a big issue we have given it a specific page! The lower parts of the tendon nearer the knee also get inflamed and painful. The most common is the inner part of the knee and the semitendinosus – related to the medial knee tendon page or Pes Anserinus.
However, the biceps femoris and semimembranosus can also develop issues and can be treated with manual therapy, exercise and work to determine why the issue has arisen to start with. Typically this is to do with poor technique or biomechanics.
We treat this issue and the underlying causes daily and have huge experience in all types of sport and dance and the associated demands.
