Tendon problems are notoriously difficult to treat. Until very recently, the paucity of research meant that effective treatment of tendinopathies remained relatively poor. However, over the last few years the research in tendinopathy rehab has exploded, and our knowledge has improved exponentially. The majority of the research has been driven by therapists from Australia (Peter Malliaras and Jill Cook amongst others). Check out this JOSPT article about proximal hamstring tendinopathy. It is an excellent overview of the etiology, assessment and evidence based treatment of this problem. And even better, one of the lead authors, Michael Reiman, is an MTI alumnus!
