Want to talk to other people with PHT and get more information about this frustrating injury? Find us here:
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.

Many people say the hardest part of being injured is the impact on their mental health. On top of that lots of people take up sport to improve their mental health or as a coping mechanism. Many sporting events are social events. People make friends through sport so when you’re injured you feel losses in many ways.
