PAIN IN THE BUTT
High hamstring tendinopathy — characterized by deep buttock pain — is prevalent among triathletes. It usually comes on slowly but can be difficult to cure.
Often caused by compressive force exerted on the tendon when the hip is flexing (when running or cycling, for example), it’s further exacerbated by prolonged sitting.
Learn more about this condition and how to treat it in this informative article by pro triathlete Jennie Hansen. Address this injury early on, and you can prevent it from becoming a chronic problem.
