Flipped Hamstring???

Anyone ever hear of a flipped hamstring? I am a PTA and today a man wanting therapy claimed his Dr. told him he had a "flipped Hamstring." He also claimed he had an MRI that confirmed it. We have yet to see this MRI or research "flipped hams." Is there such an unusual beast? Guy seems adamant.

Signed skeptical but open
