I’m the founder of the Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy Help and Support Group and was invited to talk about living with proximal hamstring tendinopathy for a decade by Brodie on his podcast series. I discuss the causes of my PHT, the failed treatments I’ve had, sitting and the challenges of everyday life, mental health, surgery in Finland and supplements.
With the right clinician, most people recover within two years or less without the need for surgery. Mine is an exceptional case. I hope this podcast helps you feel less alone and isolated.

Hannah Erl – marathon runner talks about the timeline of her PHT and insertional hamstring tears, the treatments she had prior to surgery, how she decided surgery was the answer, the procedure and the difficult emotional journey along the way that many of us have had.
Hannah’s surgery was performed by Dr. Lasse Lempainen at the Mehilainen Neo Sports Hospital, Turku, Finland. Dr. Lempainen is widely considered the best in his field.
