Is it possible to have an injury to the hamstring muscle(s) or tendon(s) without bruising that would feel tender and like a bulge when touching it?

There is rarely one without some degree of the other. ...Read more

Hip rotation: Theoretically internal rotation of the hip may help to determine tightness, but this would be nonspecific since there are multiple external rotators of the hip.
