Proximal hamstring tendinopathy is a common running and triathlon ailment. It affects many active individuals and also sedentary individuals alike. We know that 11% of all running injuries occur at the hip or pelvis (van Mechelen, 1992), but there are no epidemiological statistics specifically relating to the incidence or prevalence of proximal hamstring tendinopathy that can be sourced from the literature.
For individuals suffering from proximal hamstring tendinopathy it can be frustrating to navigate the rehabilitation required, and oftentimes symptoms may persist for extended periods of time, ranging from months even extending to years.
