When left untreated, hamstring tendinopathy can lead to further complications like long-term soreness, pain while sitting, and decreased flexibility. The best way to prevent this type of injury is by engaging in proper warmups prior to exercising and being aware of any strain or discomfort felt while performing physical activities. A physician may also recommend certain exercises designed specifically for rehabilitating the hamstring muscles.
