"I know for sure my hamstrings are weak because I've been told this by my cross country coach in h.s. 16 years ago. I couldn't do butt kicks. But then again I didn't really know how to run ..I ran on my heels in track as well. During a…"

"well, if the left hamstring is taut/tight, you should probably do some stretching exercises for the hamstrings...i.e. the hamstring resistance band stretch, or do it with a fixed woven band, first with the opposite leg bent on the floor, then…"

"Hi William, I know what you mean- I couldn't believe it when I read your post and realized there was someone else out there sharing the same nightmare! Comforting to know we're not alone. I had been in orthotics for 10 years when I them…"

"Kate- Thanks for the reply.  Our common frustration is strangely comforting... Went to that chiropractor and he starting spewing curses at me like "pronation control", "corrective shoes", and "orthotics"...which…"

"Dear Bill, I developed what sounds like a very similar injury over two years ago, but on the right side- where hamstring head attaches below the right knee. Inconclusive MRIs, xrays, CT scan, no improvement with cortisone, extended rest, dry…"

"Thanks so much, Bryan.  As frustrating as it's been hearing the same cycle of explanations for 2 years, it's equally exciting to hear something brand new like this.  I strained my right rotator cuff in high school and never…"

"First of all congrats on not accepting that your hamstring cannot be dealt with! Sounds like a muscle issue and joint itself is ok, is that right?  If so a couple of tidbits I picked up from the Natural Running Center's "injury free…"

"Agree with other posts. Start slowly though. It's a long switch so forget about Distances for a while. Start with some barefoot walking. Take the balance test and try improve balance with one leg stands whenever you can I am up to 8 miles in…"

"Not your exact issue, but pre-barefooting (actual barefoot combined with minimalist shoes, I run in Luna sandals) I had condramyalga (sp?) in both knees, often twisted ankles, wore orthopedics for PF and flat feet. I have none of those issues now…"

Began running regularly at 14 and had been injury free.  At 25, experienced a shooting pain in the outside/rear part of my left knee, about 4 miles into a run, in the area where the hamstring connects.  Has plagued me for 2 years which includes clean X-ray and MRI, 2 stints of physical therapy, extended breaks from running/cycling, regular massage therapy including rolling/icing everyday.  Injury recurs every time fatigue sets in during a run.  I've been told I may just have a taut left lateral…See More
