Hamstring Anatomy

The hamstring muscles are located on the back of your thigh. They work closely with your quadriceps muscles (front of your thigh), your gluteal muscles, and your calf muscles to ensure proper movement of your leg and hip. They allow your knee to bend, and your thigh to straighten and extend the leg back at the hip. Your hamstring muscles act as a brake to stop an action. You can feel this when walking or running downhill, landing from jumps or performing squats, and when trying to stop quickly after sprinting.

Leg anatomy and the hamstring

The hamstrings are made up of 3 long muscles that start at the bottom of your pelvis extending down the back of your thigh and along either side of your knee, to your shin bones. The lateral hamstring is the biceps femoris and the medial hamstrings are the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus. The tendons (tough fibers that connect muscle to bone) for these muscles begin at your ischial tuberosity (the bony bump under each buttock, known as your "sit bones") and attach on the outer edges of your shinbone (your tibia and fibula) just below the back of your knee. They help to stabilize your knee. Your hamstrings also have a lot of soft connective tissues and are innervated by your sciatic nerve. This part of your body is prone to injury because it crosses 2 major joints - your hip and your knee.

Hamstring Tendonitis

Leg movements

Hamstring tendonitis is often confused with hamstring tendinopathy or tendinosis. Hamstring tendonitis refers to inflammation (pain, swelling, warmth, redness and dysfunction) in one or more of the hamstring tendons located around the ischial tuberosity and/or just below the knee (on tibia and fibula). Hamstring tendinitis often leads to hamstring tendinosis (tendinopathy) over the long term.

Hamstring tendinopathy (or high hamstring tendinopathy) is a chronic tendon injury that involves degeneration of the hamstring tendons at their attachment to the ischial tuberosity or the shinbones (just below the knee). This type of tendinosis is a result of excessive tension, effort and/or repetitive use of your hamstring muscles and tendons. The initial damage can range from overstretching to partial tearing to complete rupturing of the small fibers that make up your hamstring muscles and tendons. If you do not allow your tissues to heal properly, your previous hamstring injuries will build upon each other. The inability of your tendon to repair itself encourages the microtears to accumulate faster than they can heal, increasing the degeneration in your tissue and reinforcing your pain and disability.

Age can  can affect your hamstring

If you have hamstring tendinopathy or tendinosis damage happens at a cellular level - your tendon (which is made up of collagen fibers) becomes weaker and thinner over time and the hamstring tendon fibers begin to fray and separate. The tendon loses its glistening appearance and elasticity, and often changes to a soft texture that is yellow or brown in color (mucus-like appearance). Scar tissue (very fibrous tissue that develops in the healing of wounds) or calcific deposits (calcium phosphate) develop around the injured area which can decrease the blood supply to the tissue.

Success Stories

This condition can be in one or both of your legs and normally affects active people between 30 - 50 years old, especially distance runners, sprinters, tennis players, skaters, and soccer players (or those who participate in team sports with lots of running). Other conditions that are often seen with hamstring tendonitis are bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes, avulsion fractures, stress fractures, and/or referred back pain.

Treatments

Deep Tissue Therapeutic Inferno Wraps
Innovative Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST)

During normal use, activity promotes blood flow through our body. Our body responds to the activity by sending oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the tissue. When we are at rest, the blood flow to your tendon is greatly reduced. But, when your tendon is injured or inflamed it really needs the blood flow to promote the healing process. Since you can't work your tender joint without danger of further injury, you need to stimulate the blood flow another way. Our innovative Inferno Wraps give you the best Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy available. Inferno creates special energy waves that stimulate blood flow by penetrating through the outer layers of your body. The energy waves reach deep into your tendons reducing your pain as they heal the inner tissue.

MendMeShop Inferno Wraps for effective Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

The Inferno Wrap™ is revolutionary. It's soft flexible design molds itself to the contours of your body, providing you with a perfectly fitted, easy-to-use Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy tool. You have to try one to appreciate the ease and comfort. The Inferno Wrap™ is made of durable, medical-grade neoprene. It stays in place, is flexible and contours to the shape of your body. The strategically placed pocket holds the Energy Web™ component around your tender joint and focuses the soothing and healing energy waves where you need it, at your damaged tissue. An Inferno Wrap™ gives you unparalleled blood flow stimulation energy. You simply won't find a comparable product on the market. Other therapy products can not come close to offering the comfortable, contoured fit and targeted energy treatment an Inferno Wrap™ provides.

You will feel a soothing, deep penetrating warmth as your Inferno Wrap™ works to stimulate your blood flow, we guarantee it. As your tendon heals, this sensation lessens so you know it's working! You can really feel the difference as you heal. Now you can reduce your pain and heal your tendon anywhere with the comfortable, light weight Inferno Wrap™.

Natural Healing with the Inferno Wrap Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

While the active Energy Web™ stimulates blood flow, the snug, formed neoprene wrap provides gentle pressure to control inflammation while supporting your injured tendon. Your joint feels warm and comfortable throughout the treatment. The unit is light weight and portable with a plug in adapter that you can use at home, at work, or anywhere.

Like everything we sell, our Inferno Wraps are the best quality products you will find anywhere. And like all our products, we guarantee our Inferno Wraps with our 60 day money back guarantee. If for any reason you're not happy with any product you purchase in our shop, you can send it back for a full refund.

Remember, a common mistake is that once we start feeling a little better, we often forget that our tendon may still be injured or weak. This time in particular is when almost everyone stops going to therapy and stops nurturing their still injured tendon. With Inferno Wraps, even after the pain is gone you can continue to treat your tendonitis and complete the healing process. Healing completely is critical to avoid re-injury. Who wants to have chronic pain? No one wants to go through surgery. So treat your tendons completely and avoid these terrible outcomes.

Freezie Wrap™ Advanced Cold Compression Therapy
Control Your Tendon Pain and Swelling Naturally

When you have an injured tendon or suffer from tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome, applying a Freezie Wrap for advanced cold compression therapy reduces the initial inflammation, which is key to pain relief and healing. After the initial stages of swelling have been controlled, it is beneficial to apply Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy(BFST) to the tendon. BFST promotes blood flow, which will flush the the cellular waste from the injured tissues, while providing nutrients to the torn tissues.

Freezie Wrap - Advanced Cold Compression Therapy

Our Freezie Wraps and Inferno Wraps are state of the art! The high quality plush neoprene design allows for a tighter and more comfortable fit for optimized compression therapy. It is designed specifically to mold to the unique curvatures of your body to deliver targeted relief and even energy waves or cold. The flexible, removable gel packs in the Freezie Wraps enable you to position the cold exactly where you want it. Unlike other wraps on the market, the stay-soft gel conforms to your ankle, elbow, shoulder, knee or whatever area you are treating. When pressure is applied, this specifically formulated, non-toxic gel will not migrate away from the injured site, which is a common issue with gel packs. Put simply, when you apply the wrap to your body, the gel is forced to stay in place - over your injured area. There is nothing else available like it!

Our Freezie Wraps for Cold Compression Therapy fit properly for convenient use at home, the office or on the court or field.

Dear MendMeShop,

I ordered this wrap after finding out I have a Calcium deposit in my shoulder which has turned to Tendinitis. The Freezie wrap is awesome and instantly takes the pain away. The only thing negative I can say is if you are right at a 40 size chest order the SM/LG (under 40'). I am in the process of exchanging sizes because I ordered the LG/XL (40'-48') and the wrap is bulky and very big. I am right on the cute off for 40' and went bigger when I first ordered and should have ordered the small.
