Tight Hamstrings Stretches

Hamstring Tightness and Back Pain

Tight hamstrings and back pain are a common occurrence in individuals who spend a lot of time in sitting such as office workers, students or anyone else. Tightness in the Hamstrings muscle group limits the movement of your pelvis, which can increase stress across the lower back and cause incorrect posture. More specifically, tight hamstrings, causes the pelvis to tilt posteriorly which causes a reduction in the lower back curvature. Stretching tight hamstrings will
gradually lengthen them and reduce the stress felt in the lower back.
