JOANNE I am wondering wbout your diagnosis of hamstring insertional tendonitis. Who diagnosed you and what are your symptoms?
How long have you had this? Are your feet affected as well or are you just interested in the ESWT for your butt and hamstrings?
I am experiencing (over 2 yrs now) pain in the same areas and in search of a diagnosis. Already been diagnosed WRONG three times.....
Would like your input on your currnet situation. Please respond when you get a chance.

Dear Carmen
It took three years before my injury was diagnosed accurately. I underwent 5 bone scans, X-Rays, 4MRI's, endless specialist consultations, etc. before it was properly diagnosed. The injury shows clearly on the 4th MRI.

I am a marathon runner. The areas affected are the buttocks and upper hamstrings. Sitting for long periods aggravates the injury.

An orthopaedic surgeon specialising in sports injuries has recommended hamstring release surgery. He has pointed out to me that my injury is not a common one.

Hope the above is helpful.
