Posterior thigh pain - differential diagnosis with Nick Kendrick

Improve your assessment, diagnosis, prevention and management of hamstring injuries.

When your patient presents with posterior thigh pain, how will you diagnose if they have a hamstring strain injury (HSI), proximal hamstring tendinopathy (PHT), neural irritation, gluteal tendinopathy? How can you identify pain referral from the lumbar spine, SIJ or hip, ischiofemoral impingement, hamstring myositis ossificans, or another cause?

If you treat a patient with neural irritation, myositis ossificans, lumbar or hip joint referral with a HSI rehab program, it’s likely you’ll aggravate their symptoms. How can you arrive at an accurate diagnosis, use your diagnosis to guide treatment, and improve your treatment results?
