anyone come accross this sort of pain before?

 

 

 

linky

Sounds similar to something I had a while back - pain very high up in the right hamstring (aching/bruise like). Saw a physio specialising in muscular and skeletal analysis who basically said that I had no glutes and rode/ran utilising my hammies only which ended up giving me an overuse injury. Went back to basics with glute activation exercises before moving on to strength and conditioning including lots of core. Now much more able to engage the right muscles for riding/running and finding that running off a long bike ride is noticably quicker than it was before.

Yes have had and found that doing the following helped with it.

 

DOUBLE LEG CURL ON WAY UP - THEN SINGLE LEG ON THE DOWN USING A REASONABLY HEAVY WEIGHT.

 

The theory behind this is the downward motion of control the weight helps stretch out the hamstring near the buttock, plus also increase stability and strength to what is a weak area.

 

Walking lunges is also another way of strengthening the area.

 

Myofascial release on the foam roller also assists with loosening up the area

Very interesting and definitely could be whats happening with you? Bone scan is only going to show bony hot spots which may occur at the insertion. MRI/ US would be needed to see tendon changes. Treatment remains the same- stretching, core stability and eccentric ham strengthening. This could be linked to the thread of upstroke and downstroke- riders who overuse their hamstrings???? :lol:
