      Hello everyone! I’ve been debating sending an email to the folks at TRS, but I’m not sure if they address this sort of thing. So, I thought I would start here. I’ve been dealing with proximal hamstring tendinopathy for five years. I had a PRP injection and started a fourth round of PT about six months ago which has allowed me to start running again. Unfortunately, the pain is flaring back up. Has anyone else dealt with this and found exercises on TRS helped?

      Is the pain all the time?
      Does running bother it?
      Does any specific movement(s) aggravate it?
      Are you seeing improvements with PT?
      What has your PT recommended?
      What have you done?
      What results did you see with it?

      Have you go to the pain section of the virtual mobility coach and select hamstring?
      A few others to check out and there are more.

        Hi Kaitlin, thank you for the response. To answer your questions, I typically feel pain when I’m sitting. Thankfully, I don’t feel it while running now. My first three rounds of PT didn’t help, but I had a PRP injection–unclear whether this helped–and started a fourth round of PT about 9 months ago. They’ve had me focus on eccentric exercises of the hamstring, and strengthening the glutes and legs with glute bridges, split squats, and Romanian deadlifts. I can definitely tell that my glutes are stronger now, and I’m able to run up to five miles. However, I had zero pain at the sit bone up until about a month ago, and now I have pain while sitting. My concern is the potential for the pain to get worse if I continue running.

        Thank you for sending the links as well. I’m new to TRS and hadn’t looked at the Mobility Archives, but I ended up checking them out after posting. I did look at the hamstring exercises under the Pain section of Virtual Mobility Coach, but I wasn’t sure where to begin. I’ll try the ones you sent, but please let me know if there’s anything else you’d recommend.
