MRI thigh

Hurt my hamstring 5 months ago ( had excruciating pain and severe bruising). have gone to physical therapy and have regained all my flexibility and have no acute pain anymore. My frustration is still not being able to run. I get almost immediate hamstring area tightness and have burning sensation and discomfort in my ankle/foot area also. the physical therapist thinks it is a compensatory reaction because I am flexing my foot too much to try and bring that weaker leg thru when running. I had MRI which showed abnormal signal intensity within the muscle and adjacent tissues at the junction of the middle and distal third of the long head of the biceps femoris. No full thickness tear is seen. what does this indicate? I would think I would see some improvement by now and I still feel the lagging tightness even when I walk fast. I am 47 and in great physical shape. I work out daily with weights and have no problem with elliptical workouts. Am I being too impatient or is this just not healing correctly?  Thanks

Since your "MRI which showed abnormal signal intensity within the muscle and adjacent tissues at the junction of the middle and distal third of the long head of the biceps femoris" - what this means is that there could still be edema and inflammatory changes related to muscular injury.  Sometimes it does take a while to heal but consult with your treating physician.
