Hamstring Tendonitis Treatment in West Bloomfield, MI
If you are suffering from hamstring tendonitis, you are undoubtedly desperate to find a treatment to ease your pain. Luckily, you have options. At Michigan Chiropractic Specialists, we offer hamstring tendonitis treatment to help ease your pain and reduce swelling and inflammation.
What Is Hamstring Tendonitis?
Your hamstring is a small muscle group in the upper thigh consisting of two inner muscles and one outer muscle. This muscle group is attached to the hip and knee with a set of tendons. During injuries, like hyperextension, the connective tissues can experience tiny tears resulting in pain and inflammation.
This condition, called hamstring tendonitis, can affect surrounding areas like the knee, shins, and pelvis as well. This condition is very painful and sometimes results in stiffness or reduced range of motion in the affected leg. In severe cases, hamstring tendonitis is even debilitating. Luckily, hamstring tendonitis therapy exists to help correct these problems, reduce swelling, and promote healing in the affected tendons.
Treatments for Hamstring Tendonitis
Several types of treatments for hamstring tendonitis can provide relief from your painful symptoms. For swelling and mild pain, use ice and compression to reduce inflammation.
At Michigan Chiropractic Specialists, we focus on ensuring the hips and legs are properly aligned. Then, we use gentle massage techniques to stimulate the muscles and tendons to promote healing. Massage therapy can help reduce inflammation and relax tense muscle groups, resulting in less pain. For stiff hamstrings, massage therapy will loosen muscle tissue to help you regain full mobility.
Massage therapy is often safer than many medications and produces long-term relief instead of temporary pain respite effects. In severe cases, regular massages in the hamstring area may help you manage discomfort related to tendonitis.
