An unusual case of recurrent myositis ossificans (MO) bilaterally in the hamstring muscles of a 47-year-old athlete secondary to trauma is presented with a review of the literature of current treatment options. MO is a common condition that occurs among athletes in association with muscle and/or tendon strain or contusion. After an extensive literature review, we believe this to be the first case reported of recurrent and bilateral MO in a nonsurgical setting from recurrent hamstring strains. Plain radiographs and physical examination revealed the appearance and chronology of this pathology. Treatment options to improve flexibility and decrease morbidity are discussed along with prophylaxis for future injury. Treatment of mobility and flexibility, rehabilitation goals and treatment with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, bisphosphonates, and magnesium are discussed along with prophylaxis.
