Effective treatment for hamstring tendinopathy

There are many causes of hamstring tendinopathy

Though the exact cause of hamstring tendinopathy varies, some risk factors may include inadequate warm-up, hard running or walking on slopes, overstretching, increased force due to weakness in other areas of the body and direct trauma to the area. Chiropractors often recommend targeted treatments to alleviate tendonitis pain and stiffness. Physiotherapy can be beneficial when it comes to stretching as directed by a chiropractor and daily exercises that focus on strength and conditioning. Massage therapy also helps greatly with improving circulation and reducing inflammation which may help with alleviating symptoms of hamstring tendinopathy. Visit a chiropractor, physiotherapist or massage therapist at a CARESPACE location in Kitchener or Waterloo. They will be able to properly diagnose the degree of severity of your strain and provide treatment appropriate for your recovery process.

Hamstring tendinopathy is a condition that occurs when an individual’s hamstring tendon becomes damaged due to repetitive use or overexertion. This type of injury tends to be incredibly painful, often resulting in difficulty walking or performing other common activities. 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.

Hamstring tendinopathy is a common, yet debilitating condition that can be difficult to recognize and diagnose. The main symptoms of hamstring tendinopathy are usually pain when stretching the affected leg or muscle, as well as pain when doing exercises like running or jumping. Additional signs that may indicate hamstring tendinopathy can include local swelling or buldging in the area of the injury, along with tenderness upon palpation, decreased range of motion, and night pain.

Fortunately, there are several treatments that can help reduce pain and restore function to the hamstrings. Chiropractic care is a viable option for those suffering from this condition, as chiropractic adjustments can relieve pressure on the peritendinous tissue and create proper movement in the joint. Physiotherapy is also an effective treatment, as stretching techniques and exercises can help strengthen and lengthen muscles while improving flexibility. Massage therapy is also beneficial in relieving pain associated with hamstring tendinopathy, as deep tissue massages can facilitate blood circulation and increase mobility in the affected area. Depending on severity of the injury, recovery time will vary; however, these treatments should provide noticeable relief relatively quickly.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
