Pain in "upper hamstring"/near glute from Front Splits


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a pain in my hamstring around this reigion where it says hamstring tendon:

The pain is most easily activated doing the "elephant walk" stretch from one of the stretch series. The pain is on my left side, and when I do the stretch shifting my hips to the right to stretch the left, it is easily felt.

Also when doing a stretch like this:

And front splits as well, mostly near the bottom ROM.

This is not the first time I have had this pain, I have recovered and had it re-injured a few times now. What frustrates me the most about it is it always takes several weeks to months to heal and at the time of injury, I feel nothing. There is not sign of injury like a pull or snap. I always stretch to what I feel is within my boundaries, and there is no excruciating pain/discomfort during the session prior. 

I guess what I would like to know is what exactly have I injured, what can be done to rehab it faster, and what can then be done to prehab it in the future.

Hi Arthur,

Welcome to the forums!

Please spend some time searching around (the search function should be helpful) and reading the threads that are already here. Pain/discomfort in the area that you describe is relatively frequently asked about/discussed here on the forums. Kit has also dealt with a (now seemingly healed) long-standing injury(?) in that very location and has posted about it several times.

If you still have specific questions after reading over the many other threads, please do feel free to ask. (But also keep in mind that we are on the internet and no one here is going to be able to answer questions like what "exactly" you have injured. You should find many hints here on the forums that will help you guide yourself to your own individual answers, though!)

What did your rehab protocol consist of? That's most likely the key

Laid off until pain was gone. Did some light stretching, foam rolling, hamstring curls and lunges.

Hi there,

Welcome to the forums!

You should find a search box up at the top-right of your screen if you scroll all the way up. (Or you can go directly to the search form here.) This box is your friend :) Try searching for things like "upper hamstring", "underbutt", "ischial tuberosity", etc. I could search for you and link a couple of threads, but you'll likely learn much more by exploring a bit yourself. The solution will not be the same for everyone, so reading through different threads will give you more perspectives and options. After you've explored, feel free to come back with specific questions if you're unsure of something!
