Tight hamstrings are the bane of modern life!
We sit at desks, drive in cars, and then sit down again in front of the television. All of this sitting flexes the knee, which contracts our hamstring muscles - the long muscles on the backs of the legs - into a shortened position. Over time, tight hamstring muscles can tug the bottom of the pelvis under and forward, compromising the alignment of the lumbar spine and leading to back pain.
