Hamstring Tightness: Is it the cause of your back pain?
Many of our patients come into the clinic with the complaint that they ALWAYS have tight hamstrings. It seems like no matter how much they stretch or foam roll, it never seems to make a difference. They attribute their tight hamstrings to their back stiffness and pain. Could it be that even though you have “tight” hamstrings, there might be another reason for your back pain.

There is actually a reason why our body (hamstrings) tighten up which can add more force on to the back and surrounding muscle groups.
