What Brodie has learnt from: Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy
Throughout this new weekly series, Brodie talks about his personal experiences with particular injuries and shares the lessons he has learnt along the way, so you will gain insight into injury management & prevention. This episode Brodie talks about this transition from marathon running into sprint triathlons which resulted in a proximal hamstring tendinopathy.
Brodie highlights the impact of speed on the body and how the accumulation of speed may increase the risk of injury, particularly if combined with compression such as cycling and running uphill.
We then discuss the role of compression and pain when performing rehabilitation exercises. Often runners with tendon pain are anxious to push a tendon into pain and Brodie helps guide correct rehab dosage.
Lastly, we dive into some simple, practical rehabilitation exercises that has helped Brodie along the way and finally overcome his proximal hamstring tendinopathy.
