Chronic proximal hamstring tendinopathy (cPHT) is clinically characterized by pain in the area of the ischial tuberosity. The pain may radiate distally to the popliteal fossa and usually occurs while sitting or performing sports activities. The pain typically appears and gradually increases without an initial, acute event that is remembered by the patient.
Histopathologic and imaging studies indicate that the pathologic changes observed in cPHT are similar to those found in other tendinopathies.
Accordingly, the initial treatment is conservative and usually includes rest, physiotherapy, stretching and strengthening exercises of the hamstring muscles, as well as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, there is no consensus regarding the best treatment for cPHT.
