Ghana midfielder Laryea Kingston has travelled to Germany to see a specialist in a bid to speed up his return to fitness.
The Black Stars key player has suffered a recurrence of the hamstring injury since the start of the season and will miss this month's World Cup qualifier against Benin.
Kingston, who plays for Scottish side Hearts, has tried several treatments including traditional herbal treatment to no avail.
He has now arrived in Germany to be treated by Bayern Munich's club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt to see what can be done.
"Laryea has gone to Germany to see Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt," Hearts coach Laszlo Csaba said.
"He is one of the most experienced guys in the world when it comes to sports medicine.
"He works with Bayern Munich and the national team in Germany. He will check out Laryea's muscle and hopefully the visit will help.
"His recovery has been going well and this will be another important step in the right direction."
Kingston's absence in the Ghana midfield has created opening for Isaac Vorsah and Kwadwo Asamoah as well as Moussa Narry who are likely to be called for the Benin game later this month.
