How to deal with Hamstring Injury at Sit Bone

I have been having some pain around my sit bone area on and off for a few months. I have finally been diagnosed with hamstring inflammation where it inserts into the sit bone. The cause is a leg length (functional) discrepancy.

I was first prescribed some stretches, but they ended up making matters a lot worse (too much too soon). Now I am on ICE and NSAIDs.

Has anyone here dealt with this? I am extremely disappointed that I am going to be missing several weeks (if not months) and my hope of training for a 200 mile ride in June is basically out the door.

Bike fit and especially spacers under your cleats to make your legs the same length, or at least a lot closer. Could also be a saddle issue. Maybe your saddle presses just there. Try a different saddle, too.

Thanks, I am working with the PT on the leg length issue too. I hope to be able to ride my bike again in a month or so (keeping fingers crossed).

Hamstring tendon issues and ischial bursitis can produce similar symptoms. Did an MD diagnose you?

Ice is your friend…yeah, down there.

CFBoy hit on the spacer issue, and this might resolve your problem.

You're riding a bike, not running from a Grizzly; time is on your side, so use it.
